A new filthy, funny, solo show, triangulating the sex and love letters of long dead artists.
A new filthy, funny and intimate solo show, triangulating the sex and love letters of long dead artists, contemporary sexts and a meditation on the construction of the queer female body. How do we write ourselves and for whom?
The show features letters from Joyce, Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keeffe, Mozart, Charles Bukowski, Radclyffe Hall, Eleanor Roosevelt and others. It also includes sexts sent to Rachel by anonymous donation.
Rachel Mars is a multi award-winning theatre maker. Her show OUR CARNAL HEARTS won a Total Theatre Award for Innovation in 2017, and the company she co-runs, Mars.tarrab were the 2017 Oxford Samuel Beckett Trust Award winners for ROLLER at the Barbican. She is a regular on BBC Radio2, and a fellow of the Birkbeck Centre for Contemporary Theatre.
The show although simple in concept, packs a punch emotively and politically… Rachel’s ability to hold the space allowed the audience to move past being audibly shocked, embarrassed and amused, to an empathetic and engaged connection to the material. Christie Hill, BAC.
