BABYFACE

 Edinburgh Fringe, Summerhall, 2018

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.
