MUST: The Inside Story
“Exquisite… This is open-heart surgery of the artistic kind, performed without anaesthetic.” The Guardian
“Powerful, honest and life-affirming: if only all incisions to the body were this beautiful.” Time Out
MUST is a poetic look at what it feels like to have a body. It excavates the memories and images contained in the joints and layers of bone. Inspired by images from Gulliver’s Travels, Hildegarde von Bingen, The Elephant Man and everyday experiences of the medical profession, Must takes a hard stare at the medical gaze and the assumptions people make about each others bodies.
Written by Peggy Shaw in collaboration with the Clod Ensemble.
Followed by a post show discussion.
