Liz Aggiss / Slap & Tickle
Maverick, anarchic, indomitable and fearless: all words that have been used to describe performance artist Liz Aggiss. Born in an era when children were seen and not heard, Aggiss never had a clue what she wanted to do. She just knew she wanted to be seen and heard.
Slap and Tickle is an award-winning, dark and ribald physical commentary on cultural mores and sexual taboos: a disorientating display of interpretations and contradictions about women, girls, mothers, bitches and senior citizens. Beating a path through the personal and historical, Aggiss creates a feminist soup that lurches from spoken word to expressionist movement, from music hall to radio nostalgia, from costume change to prop manipulation. It is push and pull, punishment and reward, slap and tickle... all the way home.
Jija Sohn / Kyabajo
In the solo piece KYABAJO, Jija Sohn embodies the identity of the typical Japanese hostess and deconstructs it in a surreal way. She researches how power can manifest itself in subtle ways. She finds herself facing and interfacing with a series of objects meant to become installations that let her subconscious emerge – culminating in a visual performance in which the raw side of man is celebrated and the seedy embraced. Surrender to a game of oppression, power, and liberation.
