A six-foot woman, her matching sex doll and a wardrobe… Anita Butler’s jaw is still aching after dropping to the floor so many times during this potty show.
From the moment Amanda emerges from her box Coccinellidae had me in stitches. Want to eat cake, wear neon tights, whirl around to Wham!, or jiggle your wobbly bits? Do it! Defy those categories! You will be inspired by this feminist exploration of what it is to be a woman, which merges physical theatre, clowning, comedy and audio testimonies of over 100 women. Costume changes have never been so funny! If you don’t know what coccinellidae means, it would ruin the surprise if I told you… Did I also mention there’s a giant vulva? And for what it’s worth, I couldn’t agree more with her about Taylor Swift. You’ll have to see the show to find out.
Coccinellidae by The Cutlery Crew is at St Anne’s Art Centre on Saturday at 5.45pm and Sunday at 1.15pm.
