Liz Aggiss - Survival Tactics

Friday 09 November 2012, 18:30

From a glamorous, blonde bombshell in high-heels to a pigeon toed, bow legged, oddball in big pants - Survival Tactics upturns the usual perception of the female stage body on its head.

Inspired by the expressionist dance phenomenon Ausdruckstanz with its fascination for grotesque dance plus Aggiss' penchant for British music hall, the artist pays comedic homage to both her historical mentors and herself, through a seamless fusion of movement, text and film.

"...a rare and wonderful talent from well outside the square." New Zealand Herald
