Liz Aggiss’s Slap and Tickle is a dark and ribald physical commentary on cultural mores, forays and sexual taboos.
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 presents 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.
Come on everybody – let’s have a party!
