What If I Told You
Army @ the Fringe - Army @ the Fringe
Let’s spend an hour playing together. As members of The Mayers Ensemble we’ll explore boundaries, personal histories, gender and race. Throughout her life, choreographer Pauline has defied assumptions made about her based on gender, background and skin colour. Now we are invited into this skilful blend of theatre and dance as she tells her story and the history that has informed it. The story of James Sims, self-ascribed father of modern gynecology who operated on slaves without anaesthetic weaves through Pauline’s own.
