'EGG' by Paper Doll Militia
What does it take to make a baby? An accident / right timing / a drunken night / right people / right parts? But what if you don’t have all the right parts? Or you do, and one of them is broken. As it turns out, some things are un-mendable.
Egg is a powerful and evocative new aerial theatre production from acclaimed circus theatre company Paper Doll Militia, a highly visual exploration of female fertility, sexuality and choice. Weaving together personal testimony, live original music and stunning aerial artistry, the piece takes audiences on a deeply personal and political journey, following the true story of a woman who gave her eggs to her friend to have a child.
'Work In Progress' by Jess Gibson
“How do you Feel? What do you think?”
Sometimes, everyday questions turn into existential crises for Jess as she struggles to manage her mental health; Borderline Personality Disorder, Anxiety and Depression. However, through humour and a passion for dance, Jess begins to learn how to feel comfortable with feeling uncomfortable.
Work in Progress is a warm light-hearted solo show about being Scouse, dancing to Britney Spears and sharing stories of hope. Jess welcomes you on this journey with her and apologises to her Nan for swearing.
