A Spectacle of Herself image

Join Laura on a mission to serve herself up [in]appropriately for your consumption, in a bold, cinematic, acrobatic odyssey through the frontiers of mental health, queerness, rage & the 21st Century space race. Directed by Ursula Martinez, with Laura’s critical and cheeky signature mix of autobiography, lip-sync, video and aerial rope, A Spectacle of Herself navigates the personal and political to seek out new worlds and ways to be seen.
‘a powerful and empowering piece of work’ ★★★★ (Scotsman)
‘wildly funny and deeply touching’ ★★★★  (The Skinny)
‘a testament to the transformative power of theatre’ ★★★★★  (Morning Star)
Laura Murphy is a genre-defying queer performance maker from Bristol, who makes text-driven and dynamic physical performance about things that she thinks needs to be talked about. Challenging, intimate and spectacular, her work is a cross-disciplinary fusion of theatre, live art, circus and verbal explosion.
