Conceived, written, choreographed and performed by Liz Aggiss, Slap and Tickle is an award winning, 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.
….drenched in raucous, uninhibited humour, all of which nonetheless unmasks a very real world of gendered prejudices. seeingdance.com
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. It is push and pull, punishment and reward, slap and tickle……all the way home.
