* Bitch on Heat *
Theatre Works and Leah Shelton present Bitch on Heat By Leah Shelton Directed by Ursula Martinez Welcome to the doghouse. Beware. This Bitch bites. Love latex and hate the patriarchy? Pour a drink, ditch the leash, and come revel in this twisted rehashing of the vintage sexism that drives how we live and love and fight and f*ck. Absurdist lip-synch meets high-camp performance art in this pop-fuelled critique of sexual politics in the age of implied consent. Nothing is sacred as psycho-siren Leah Shelton trawls through a Pandora's box of ancient myths, porn, pop-culture, instructional records, and revenge movie heroines. Multi-award winner, international artist Leah Shelton is an Australian performance maker whose work sits in the sweet spot between cabaret, contemporary, and live art. She has collaborated with renowned UK Director and Performance Art Provocateur Ursula Martinez on this new solo work - an untamed political commentary about the sexualisation and vilification of the female body.
