Boyle and Waters in LEOTARD
Two of Queensland’s most fearless physical comedians, Neridah Waters and debase core creative Bridget Boyle, are combining to form Boyle and Waters in LEOTARD – a comedy double act like no other.
Two performers wander into a dusty room. Suddenly the space is illuminated, filled with vintage leotards, glittering with sequins, lycra in every colour of the rainbow. One by one, the performers pull on the lycra and are transformed. Who were the women who wore these leotards? What secrets will be revealed? And how many interpretive dance routines will there be?
Leotards reveal the truth of the body, underneath the most absurd layers of adornment. In LEOTARD, Boyle and Waters reveal the truths of these characters under their absurd adornment of mental sequins. Leotard is a timely exploration of the performance of womanhood via lashings of Lycra.
Neridah Waters and debase key creative Bridget Boyle return to the Metro Arts to develop this exciting new physical comedy.
