Marisa Carnesky: Dr Carnesky’s Incredible Bleeding Woman
Dr Carnesky’s Incredible Bleeding Woman showcases the magic of human cyclical renewal to uncover the last unmentionable taboo of menstruation in an all-out genre-bending contemporary performance spectacular.
Expect a provocative, rigorously researched, untamed romp into the importance of celebrating the symbolic and cultural power of menstruation. Here not only menstruation and menstrual rights but issues around fertility, miscarriage, trans identities, lost ancient herstories and what it means to be ‘female’, are scrutinised, politicised and reclaimed. Both deadly serious and hilariously tongue in cheek, this is a show that is part surreal lecture, part magic show, part witchy ritual and part activist protest.
Featuring Marisa Carnesky and collaborating artists Fancy Chance, Rhyannon Styles, MisSa Blue, H Plewis and Nao Nagai.
Marisa Carnesky’s exploration of the menstruation taboo starts off cheeky and turns into something downright hair-raising
