Liz Aggiss: Slap and Tickle at The Lowry, Manchester, 9 March 2017, from £10.00 - Book now

Liz Aggiss has been refining and developing her live-art discourse on feminism for almost 40 years, starting in the ’80s supporting punk legends The Stranglers with her cabaret troupe The Wild Wigglers.  

Slap and Tickle is a disorienting and brave solo performance; a display of contradictions and interpretations on girls, ladies, women, mothers, bitches, dogs, pensioners and senior citizens. This last political point is personal to Aggiss – challenging the cultural invisibility of older women, their sexuality and bodies.

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, beating a path through the personal and the historical.

Suitable for over 15s, and part of SICK! Festival 2017.
