Performance art legend Peggy Shaw brings the Barbican a funny way to look at the darker side of life.

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]ruff split britches[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Performance artist Peggy Shaw pays tribute to the family, friends and performers who have inspired and kept her company over the years, following the stroke she had in 2011. A “freewheeling monologue with deadpan humour and arresting honesty.”

They Say: Supported by video monitors, a green screen and her virtual back-up band, Shaw talks, croons and imitates her way through a solo show confronting identity and change. Autobiographical anecdotes and filmed images are matched by tongue-in-cheek song renditions, with ‘The Hokey Cokey’ tweaked to inform us about the signs of spotting a stroke.[/vc_column_text][vc_btn title=”Buy Tickets” color=”turquoise” size=”lg” align=”center” link=”url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.barbican.org.uk%2Ftheatre%2Fevent-detail.asp%3FID%3D18744||target:%20_blank”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
