Ripe & Folie a Deux: Double Bill
Tilly Lee-Kronick & Gossamer Thread17 Jul 8.00pm
"What do you expect when you see me?"
Ripe is a surreal exploration of our attitudes and assumptions towards female performers. Using static trapeze, dance and spoken word, Ripe unpeels stereotypes wrapped around women’s bodies.
Folie à Deux
What do you get if you cross a circus performer with a mentalist?
Alex McAleer and Daisy Black combine magic, circus, theatre and sideshow in a double act inspired by traditional vaudeville. Folie à Deux invites you to revel in the madness of two as they push their relationship to its limits. Expect dangerous displays of public affection, an eclectic soundtrack and hula hoops. Lots of hula hoops.
Part of Postcards 2018, our annual Pay What You Want festival. Book your tickets, watch the show and pay what you think it's worth afterwards.
