March – Telegraph Hill, London


One woman performance art theatre, about the representation and life cycle of women. Audience can draw performance; expect interaction, disturbance and nudity.

Where girls are born on Earth may determine their chances in life – whether enjoying sex is an option, or how they feel about their bodies.

How free are any of us as women – whether under a veil, or in stilettos and a G-string? This show explores the choices and indignities of being a woman in the 21st Century. The violence that is normal, and the power and pleasure that is possible.

Both raw and disturbing, sensual and beautiful, Girl in Suitcase will engage the audience in the creation of art. An unfolding feminine realm that begins with a naked encounter; the site of the female body.

Saturday 19th March, 7pm, Telegraph Hill Festival

The Old Library, part of Telegraph Hill Centre; for map, see here
