A virtuoso aerial puzzle! Laura Murphy puts on a show in this breathtaking performance on the ropes. Whether she’s playing a weightless astronaut or revealing her mechanisms of desire, the Bristol-based acrobat strives to take her place, all of it. By exposing her vulnerability, her rage, by juggling her identities, she reveals the changing map of her interior. A hypnotic explosion of creativity, enhanced by video projection and lip-synching.

A performance both visual and textual, the show exposes the body laid bare in its expedition into queer territory. Laura Murphy offers a powerful and total show that navigates her experiences of mental health, sexuality and the patriarchy. An uncompromising celebration at the crossroads of the personal and the political.
