Tristan Bates Theatre

Mad Womxn In The Attic


by Camilla Harding 


27th - 29th June 




Part of the John Thaw Initiative 

Curated by Otherland Theatre 


Stuck in a room, paralyzed by your own body and the threat of never being able to escape: What would you turn to? Camilla chooses ritual, dancing in her head and childhood fantasy. But rage, vengeance and fear aren't far behind.

Camilla is stuck. She has been for longer than she can remember. This attic room which once held Miss Havisham and Jane Eyre's clandestine rival now keeps her, and her biggest fears, hostage. Join them on a mental journey through childhood, illness and a self exploration of what it means to inhabit a body that doesn't feel like your own. Expect witches, spells, dancing, drag, tears, rage and a messy madness of a show.

Praise for Camilla's previous work includes:

“One of my favourite pieces [...] Deceptively simple in its format yet deliciously complex in its subject matter” Ian Foster (outtobeclowns theatre blog)

“Wistful, joyous and tender in a show that is transgressive in many ways" Lyn Gardner

“[Camilla's performance] give[s] a sense of a verbatim realism, existing somewhere between truth and fiction, the expressiveness and humanity [...] demands our attention and our empathy.”
