Lights up on RED – a new one woman show from the 2017 ACT Artist of the Year – Liz Lea.

Is she mad, is she immoral, is she imagining or or is she simply misbehaving?

RED is fearless, RED is fierce, RED is powerful. RED is fraught and is broken, and is still running.

The language of body, movement, words and film. RED is an elusive, fractious and fabulous interdisciplinary performance, bringing on the bawdy and banishing the banal. RED challenges laughter, relief and tenacity. A tale told by one woman with a particular take on how time passes for us all. Let Liz Lea get you in touch with your mischievous self in this new and captivating work about the temporal workings of your own body.

Created with collaborators Brain Lucas, Vicki van Hout, Martin del Amo, Virginia Ferris, Karen Norris, Nino Tamburri and Alexander Hunter.
