This show has now finished

Power? Sex? Control? Part 1: Meet Baby, a prostitute willing to entertain you with Barbie dolls… 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 has become 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.
