Boyle and Waters in LEOTARD
Two of Queensland’s most fearless physical comedians, Neridah Waters and Bridget Boyle, are combining to form Boyle and Waters in LEOTARD.
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 were their secrets? 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.
Featuring real-life stories from female-identifying bodies from all walks (and dances) of life, this is a not-to-be-missed theatrical extravaganza. Boyle and Waters in LEOTARD is one of a dazzling array of performance events happening as part of the Metro Arts, With Love festival. Come and help bid farewell to this historic arts venue and celebrate the many extraordinary performances that it has housed over the years.
