Preview: Liz Aggiss-‘Slap and Tickle’

Never one to rest on her laurels, Liz Aggiss is one of Britain’s naughtiest, most provocative and dazzling choreographers and dancers.  Last year’s brilliant Edinburgh Fringe hit The English Channel indulged in some gloriously bad behaviour, including a cover version of  a Dead Kennedys classic in a lounge style, surreal shimmying and keeping Werthers sweets in a warm place, to be distributed out later in the interval among the wide-mouthed audience.


This time around, though, she is confronting the visibility of older women head-on, in her new show, Slap and Tickle which comes to the RISE festival in Findhorn, before continuing throughout Britain on tour in the Spring.

 Meditating on the ageing female body in her usual inimitable style, you can expect challenging, intelligent work from a true, fearless original. Aggiss uses real, lived experience and weaves history into her practice. She owns any space she performs in-  punky, raw and fierce, but always with a sense of humour, and a nod to shifting cultural and social mores.

Her work represents what subversives do best- with individuality, power and skill. Go and see this saucy mare for yourself and prepare for… who can say…
