Peepshow takes-back objectification and sexism, and kicks the patriarchy where it counts. Over Peepshow’s five spectacles, performers will review the four waves of feminism in a wrestling ring, explore the complexities of the male gaze through Broadway show tunes, and expose the modern woman’s complicity in her own oppression through a synchronized-swimming-and Kpop-inspired-ballet.
There isn’t another offering as part of Washington, DC’s second Women’s Voices Theatre Festival with a multi-sensory ode to female genitalia, which means Peepshow is not to be missed.
Recommended for 18yo+. 100% accessible accessible to and enjoyable by hearing and Deaf audience members. Peepshow is an intimate experience, capped at 30 persons per showing.
