Did I Choose These Shoes (Rhythm Theatre Company)

By | Published on Sunday 27 August 2017

Spoken word meets physical theatre, in a resonant performance that explores what it really means to grow up and live as a female in twenty-first century Britain. This piece was written and performed by poet Ella Dorman-Gajic, alongside Amy Bonar and Niamh Brangwyn, who together form a talented trio, at times moving mesmerisingly in unison, to deliver an hour of everyday starting points for feminist discussion. Think body image, catcalling and period problems, all expressed with beautiful lyricism. It’s something that you’ll find painfully relatable or else somewhat enlightening. It doesn’t cover all the complexities of feminist issues, or delve deeper into intersectionality, but it doesn’t claim to – it’s simple in its honesty, directly expressing personal experiences.
