Under: a performance by Imogen Stirling and Susan Bear

Sunday 28 April, 2024

At nearly 30, Steph’s adult life has followed a clockwork pattern of contraceptive pills and pomegranate seeds. Weighed down by the looming expectations of her age, fertility and motherhood, Steph tries to ignore the pull of the underworld. But as the music builds and pleasure grows, is it any surprise that she finds herself yearning for the seeds?
Playwright and poet Imogen Stirling and producer and multi-instrumentalist Susan Bear present a brand new fusion of poetry, theatre and live drum and bass, which was originally commissioned by Push The Boat Out festival and the National Theatre of Scotland. Contemporising the Greek myth of Persephone, Queen of the Underworld, this performance delves into female choice, sexual autonomy and ownership with unbridled, sensuous joy.
This 30-minute performance will be followed by a discussion about its themes chaired by Beth Cochrane.
