Drawing from circus, stand-up and live art, Contra is an autobiographical solo cabaret of contradictions. Using a rope and a roll of cling film, Laura Murphy sets her experiences of her own body amidst an anecdotal tapestry of body hair observations on public transport and dinner table discussions about lesbian sex. Dark, witty and uncompromising, Contra interrogates personal, social and historical occupations with the female body, and explores where such bodies are positioned and how we’re meant to look at them. Expect nudity and explicit references to female sexuality and mythical reptiles.
