Louise Orwin: OH YES OH NO

Date:Tue 23 Jul
Time:7pm
Venue:J2
Price:£8 | £6 (cons)

presented by Louise Orwin

This is a show about having sexual fantasies that might not align with your politics. It’s about understanding what you want, and wondering how the hell to ask for it. Using audio from real life interviews, Barbie and Ken role play, and a heady mix of pop culture references, Oh Yes Oh No is playful, surreal and dark. It asks difficult questions about desire, consent and rape culture, and wonders who ultimately gets to have a voice.

Louise Orwin is an award-winning writer, researcher and performance maker. She makes research-driven performance projects about subjects that are close to home, hard to get your head around, and need to be spoken about. She makes work about what it means to identify as female today, in a fast-moving, media-saturated world that prizes patriarchal, heteronormative narratives. Louise likes to make work that is provocative and brash, intimate, awkward at times, and generally filled with a heady dose of pop culture
 
She makes work that gets under your skin, and will stay there days after you’ve left the theatre.
