Description

The body is a unique object in human experience; both object and objectified, yet the body is also subject. A skeleton of monologues fleshed out with spoken word and physical theatre, Body Shop travels head to toe exploring varied aspects of British womanhood, starting with the environmental universe of the body. The game is simple: players must select body parts to build a woman in the shortest time. But when play is both off-kilter and online, can a feminine figure figure a femme? Does womanhood transcend the physical self? BRB, we’ll get back 2 u on that.
