Hey Baby! Welcome to a world of knee socks, bunches, lollypops, bubble gum and models adopting the childlike expressions of six year old girls. A daring exploration into the paradox of living in a society that continues to infantilise women. Paedophilia is not ok yet fetishised images of women as pre-pubescent girls are. In this brave and outlandish performance a grown woman attempts to be your baby to discover if innocence really is as sexy as we’re told it is.
The creation of this show was kindly supported by the Tom Hunter Foundation (as part of Scotland's '100 Disruptors' initiative), Battersea Arts Centre, Platform Theatre Glasgow, and a successful crowd funding project. Created between 2015 - 2018, and performed at In Between Time (Bristol), Buzzcut Festival (Glasgow), Camden People's Theatre (London) and at Summerhall, where it was performed as part of their Edinburgh Fringe programme 2018.
