DR CARNESKY’S INCREDIBLE BLEEDING WOMAN
MARISA CARNESKY


“Red-Bloodedness with powerful and affecting honesty’
Herald Scotland ★★★★

Putting the magic back into menstruation, showwoman and artist Dr Marisa Carnesky breaks the last unmentionable taboo in order to reinvent menstrual rituals for a new era. Drawing on the hidden power of a forgotten matriarchal past this is an all out genre bending contemporary performance spectacular. Delivered with tongue in cheek reverence, the show embodies a live art/cabaret crossover - mutating between a bizarre anthropology lecture to a magic stage show, to a feminist, activist ritual.

Referencing representations of women and blood from ancient mythology to classic horror movies, menstruation takes centre stage in a profound exploration of what it means to be ‘female’. Issues around fertility, body shame, taboo and lost ancient herstories are scrutinised, politicised and reclaimed. With a potent brew of surrealism horror and parody, Dr Carnesky presents mind-blowing menstrual rituals utilising all manner of skills, tricks and props and an unstoppable flow of sheer heart and soul.

Accessibility: This performance is BSL interpreted.

PASSING THROUGH
JULIE CLEVES & ROBBIE SYNGE


Julie Cleves and Robbie Synge have been close friends since meeting at a dance company audition in London over eight years ago. We didn’t get the job.

Passing Through shares the story and practice of Julie and Robbie’s eight years of artistic experimentation and friendship. Escaping the studio and becoming visible, Julie and Robbie try to push the limits of what is possible together through bringing materials and their bodies together. Novel solutions to tricky problems allow us to share experiences together and achieve apparently straightforward actions.

Passing Through is about two people doing what they do, at work and in friendship. Taking time, taking care and getting somewhere together. Touch, effort, risk, motivation and goals. It is about new technology or new approaches with technology and challenges expectations and assumptions. It asks us to consider the details.

Passing Through is one of several outcomes of Julie and Robbie's ongoing collaboration.

Accessibility: This performance is BSL interpreted.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for BUZZCUT DOUBLE THRILLS are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
