A solo show exploring the personal and shared experiences of growing up as one of the ‘feral underclass’ in relation to today’s ‘Austerity Britain’. Fleas, cheap clothes, thrifty bread, cold baths, and debauched disadvantaged dancing will be unleashed as Catherine Hoffmann charts the drive for survival and fitting in.
With stories and songs about how to get by, Hoffmann attempts to overcome the shame of bareness and celebrate our spirit of community and hope.
A one woman flea circus doled up with faded glory, austerity pants, mouldy scones and hot chocolate.
