Carnesky: Showwomen

Carnesky: Showwomen

On Stage

TBC

A spectacular new show from Olivier award-winning performance maker Marisa Carnesky, SHOWWOMEN is a feminist rewrite: The untold herstory of extraordinary British working-class entertainment from immigrant, queer, activist and occult perspectives.

1940’s body magic star Koringa, 1930’s pioneer clown Lulu Adams, 1950s female dare-devil Florence Shufflebottom and 1880’s teeth hanging aerialist superstar Miss La La have inspired an exploration of lesser-known stories of extraordinary women in variety performance from a century ago.
