Whalebone
  • Edinburgh Fringe

Whalebone is about bodies: who takes up space, how much, and why. Three puppeteers stand awkwardly in corsets. A woman decides to take control of her body " deleting it, piece by piece. Reimagining Lolita's lesser-known sister, Nabokov's Laura, Whalebone collides puppetry and physical theatre in a world where bodies are painted, tucked, tightened and taught, where shadows are embarrassing and silhouettes become stencils. Irreverent feminist theatre, narrated by a talking vagina. Praise for Hatch It: 'a mesmerizing, high-octane piece' (TheatreBubble.com). 'A highly entertaining piece of work that, above all, is a work of love' (AYoungerTheatre.com).
