NAKED LADIES, a feminist-play-meets-performance-piece. Written & Performed by Thea Fitz-James Directed by Zoë Erwin-Longstaff
NAKED LADIES is that moment where someone tells you that women are naturally secretive. It’s the moment they say, “Women take off their clothes to forget about their fathers”. It’s locked in the skin: intimate. It asks what are we hiding when we show it all? And what does it mean to be truly exposed? Thea brings many naked ladies on stage, from the fleshy 40 year-old at the YMCA, to the platinum pussy on your computer screen. Between the naked and the nude, between forgetting fathers and remembering mothers, past sexual stigma and personal secrets, NAKED LADIES weaves personal narrative, art history, and performance theory to ask why women get naked on stage and off. Why, where and for whom?
