Amy and Rosana are sisters, born exactly 22 months apart in the mid ‘80s.
Amy has worked in the sex industry. Rosana is a lesbian with a shaved head and hairy armpits.
They are both feminists.
In Sister, Amy and Rosana Cade present a bold and unflinching examination of themselves: Their family bonds, shared experiences, and the differing paths they have taken in their adult lives. This performative exploration of female sexuality will see them revealing everything in an attempt to understand their own and each other’s sexual identities, and how the world they grew up in together has shaped them into the women they are today.
Originally presented as a work in progress at Arches Live 2013, Sister returns as a developed piece for the 2014 Behaviour Festival.
“…the sheer heft of their unflinchingly naked frankness leaves you caught between laughter and tears.”
“The performance fairly bristles with politics, as the two begin to ask whether feminists can simply turn their backs on the porn industry, or should be trying to invade and transform it.”
“…an educative exploration of female sexuality and the incalculable forms which it can take”

“Where can you see tomorrow’s work today? The answer is The Arches.”
Producing and presenting risk-taking work from local and international artists and companies, the building has boasted performances over the past two years from Derevo, The TEAM and Taylor Mac, hosted the National Review of Live Art and New Territories festivals and seen blistering performances from boundary-pushing artists and companies such as John Moran, Adrian Howells, Ontroerend Goed and Quarantine as part of 2010’s BEHAVIOUR festival, our annual celebration of the live experience.
The Arches is also Scotland’s leading provider of support for emergent artists and performance practitioners, providing a year-long programme of opportunities including Artist in Residence programmes and our two annual awards, Platform 18: New Directions and the Brick Award, as well as showcasing raw work from homegrown talent such as Nic Green and Rob Drummond in Arches LIVE, our annual festival of brave new work.
Our dedicated Creative Learning programme offers even further-reaching opportunities for development across a broad range of social groups, with events ranging from urban music production course Tigerstyle and the newly launched Arches Community Choir, to mentoring schemes, professional development projects and off-site performance work with diverse social groups.
Words from Jackie Wylie, The Arches’ Artistic Director, following the tragic death of Adrian Howells:
“All at The Arches are devastated by the loss of Adrian Howells this week. He was our Artist in Residence and The Arches was his creative home. But more than that, he was a dear friend and companion in life to many of us here.
So many would say that there truly was no one like him, who personified love, generosity and the deepest type of empathy and desire to understand those lucky enough to have met him. With great humour he was able to create an instant connection with anyone he encountered. He was able to translate this desire to nurture and connect into his performance practice and in doing so leaves behind not only an incredible and influential body of work but a multitude of audience members across the world who have in some way been transformed by these encounters.
He supported, encouraged and was at the heart of an entire community of artists in Glasgow who will miss him terribly.”
