Liz Aggiss: Slap and Tickle

Hear Me Roar 2017

Liz Aggiss in Slap and Tickle

Maverick, anarchic, indomitable and fearless: all words that have been used to describe performance artist Liz Aggiss. 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 a 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.

A very funny solo piece… no need for Aggiss to bemoan the lack of opportunities facing older women in the theatre, because she puts herself centre stage
