Liz Aggiss: Slap and Tickle at the Capstone Theatre

Liz Aggiss: Slap and Tickle

Liz Aggiss: Slap and Tickle, 2 November 2018, from £9.50 - Book now

Maverick, anarchic, indomitable and fearless: all words that have been used to describe performance artist Liz Aggiss. Now her acclaimed show – Slap and Tickle – comes to Liverpool’s Capstone Theatre as part of LEAP Dance Festival 2018.

Born in an era when children were seen and not heard, Liz 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. Slap and Tickle won a Total Theatre Award Edinburgh Festival 2017.
