Peggy Shaw’s RUFF

April 14-16th
Silk Street Theatre
7.45pm – BSL interpretation on Friday 15th
£16 plus booking fee

Group discounts available.

Performance artist Peggy Shaw ruminates on life before and after the stroke she had in 2011, delivering a freewheeling monologue with deadpan humour and arresting honesty. Supported by video monitors, a green screen and her virtual back-up band, Shaw talks, croons and imitates her way through anecdotes and stories, in a manner ‘admirably unsentimental and often very funny indeed’ (New York Times).

RUFF constitutes a central component of a larger body of creative and public engagement work by Split Britches (Shaw and Lois Weaver), exploring ageing and wellbeing in the arts and as artists.

Post Show Q&A
Following a recent Ideas Lab on this topic, hosted by The Culture Capital Exchange with Lois Weaver, Thursday 14th will now include a post-show Q&A with a health professional, contributing to this ongoing conversation.
