Description

Power? Sex? Control? Part Two: Baby, the Barbie doll-playing prostitute, becomes more and more a doll herself. Experience a bizarre underworld of desire and oppression. In bambule.babys’ immersive performance installation nothing is safe or pretty. Grotesque codes of trauma, passion, violence are intermingled with writer-director Anna Valeska Pohl’s recollection of her former relationship to a person who became a sex worker. Retelling the Hades-Persephone myth from a feminist perspective, Baby Paradise explores the barbarities of our over-sexualised culture. In an atmosphere of intimacy and voyeurism the audience is left face to face with its own nakedness.
