takes over Duckie for one night only

What is the difference between a Showgirl and a Showwoman and why does the term Showwoman seem absent from popular culture?

In a new work in progress solo show, Marisa Carnesky draws together forgotten stories of marginalised performers from the history of British variety with her own strange stories from three decades of show-making and performance activism.

Surreal vignettes featuring nostalgic dream-like imagery of old shows, of women as part creature, as colluding with animals, fuses with esoteric superstition and ecofeminist propositions.
