Cyst-er Act by Catherine Hoffmann. A messy live art musical probing into the bloody realms of the womb. What's it like to have your fallopian tube hacked off or to birth a 10lb cyst baby? This new work is about the personal experience of having an ovary removed and the discoveries of others' womb difficulties. It uncovers lost knowledge about women's bodies and how these hidden things occur through punk, death metal and some gospel thrown in. Catherine is joined by her two poly-cysters. Expect slime, songs and speculums. Supported by Arts Council England, Metal and Ovalhouse.
