Liz Aggiss: Slap and Tickle


Friday 2 November, 8pm
Capstone Theatre, Hope University Creative Campus
Tickets: £11.50 / £9.50

Maverick, anarchic, indomitable and fearless: all words that have been used to describe performance artist Liz Aggiss. Born in an era when children were seen and not heard, Liz never had a clue what she wanted to do. She just knew she wanted to be seen and heard.

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. 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.

SLAP AND TICKLE won a Total Theatre Award Edinburgh Festival 2017.

This is the launch event for LEAP 2018 on the same night as Homotopia Festival Launch Party where we’ll be heading afterwards!

“Slap and Tickle is a pointed and bawdily funny exploration of what it means to refuse to act your age.”
Lyn Gardner

“The hilarious tickle never undermines the serious slap in this solo – sheer brilliance.”
Mary Brennan The Glasgow Herald

“….drenched in raucous, uninhibited humour, all of which nonetheless unmasks a very real world of gendered prejudices”.
Róisín O’Brien
