Arches LIVE 2011: Cara Berger for Flatrate: Backbone and Navel #3

Tue 20 - Wed 21 Sep 2011 | 9.15pm (45 mins) | £7/£5

I haven’t always been alone. I must have been with someone. Maybe even inside someone, since I have a navel in the middle of my belly visible to the naked eye.

Backbone and Navel #3 is direct image theatre inspired by feminist philosopher Helene Cixous, which reimagines and re-presents her ideas, tapping into a resurgence of debate about what it means to be a woman today. Cixous’ writing on Genesis and the fall of Eve forms the backdrop to this exploration of our cultural ecology: of forests, heroes and the female body.

Intimate, honest, and unflinching, the show attempts to reclaim the female identity.
