Subverting the body beautiful

Choreographed and performed by Bonnie Curtis, Mentored by Kay Armstrong, Sound Design by Fiona Lloyd Harding, Dramaturgy by Nell Ranney (Photography Credit: David Bonnell - Sydney Dance Photography).

A grotesque creature navigating the world through the lens of a stereotypical “hot-body”. A creature trying to live up to the expectations of the world around her, riddled with insecurity and self-hate. Sabotaged by her limitations.
