A poignant, riotous and ultimately triumphant exploration of one woman’s story – an exquisite exploration of female endurance. Described as unforgettable, shattering and hilarious, RED is a soul baring retelling of one one woman’s journey through illness and recovery with an eye to the future.
RED is fearless, RED is fierce, RED is powerful – a one woman show full of film and fabulousness. You will laugh, you’ll cry, you won’t forget.
RED explores Liz Lea’s journey and experiences with Endometriosis. She has the disease for 20 years as she created and toured her work internationally. Returning to Australia she needed a bowel reconstruction – all of which could have been avoided had she paid attention to her body and her body’s needs. RED charts this journey and that of her recovery, loosing and refinding her sense of humour.
Created with choreographers Vicky van Hout, Martin del Amo and Virginia Ferris, led by dramaturg Brian Lucas, the work explores all nature of the human condition – one woman’s story told in ways that have universal themes. Honest, face to face dialogue with the audience balanced with beautifully framed with film and movement.
