Wicked Bodies reflects on many issues centering women and their bodies that have persisted for centuries: fear of bodily functions, horror at what knowledge women might possess, disgust at the way women carry on their daily existence, and the crumbling of beauty as women age. This timely work explores the culture of old crones, evil stepmothers, and the use of the female body as a source of fear by governments and institutions.
The theater at YBCA will be transformed into an intimate space for this production, with audiences seated in small, interactive pods for the first act, before the performers move to the stage for the second act.
Wicked Bodies is presented in conjunction with a major new multidisciplinary exhibition Brett Cook & Liz Lerman: Reflection & Action.
