World Premiere: Foreign Body

Part of WOW – Women of the World

Explore healing after sexual assault in a beautifully crafted solo show. Told from a unique and challenging perspective, using a combination of physical theatre and verbatim, woven together with a stunning original score, Foreign Body is a liberating and life-affirming story.

The piece includes testimonials from the performer, the perpetrator of one of her assaults and several other survivors of sexual assault.

The play is followed by a Q&A with the performer, alongside other survivors and women’s rights activists.
