19.00 Finale performance Slap and Tickle by Liz Aggiss Tickets £12 - £10 Early bird until 30 June

Liz Aggiss’ performance Slap and Tickle is a dark and ribald physical commentary on cultural mores, forays and sexual taboos. Liz Aggiss places herself centre stage in this solo performance in a vociferously moving and disorientating display of contradictions and interpretations, on girls, ladies, women, mummys, mothers, bitches and dogs, pensioners and senior citizens. Decoding mythologies, platitudes, refrains and old wives tales, this performance navigates itself into a feminist soup; it is push and pull, punishment and reward, slap and tickle... all the way home.

14yrs+ only. 14-17yrs to be accompanied by an adult.

Produced by curious festival and BALTIC | curious festival celebrates and explores Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer cultures through the arts.
