Peepshow takes-back objectification and sexism, widens the feminist frame, and kicks the patriarchy where it counts. Over the span of Peepshow’s five spectacles, performers will review the history of feminism in the 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-inspired-ballet.
Peepshow is a theatrical exhibition created and presented by an entirely non-male identified collective of artists, and 100% accessible to Deaf and hearing audience members. Recommended for 18yo+.
February 7 – 25, 2018
