Monamas Theatre Company returns to Voila! with this highly physical piece of theatre!
“We are told that femininity is in danger; we are exhorted to be women, remain women, become women. It would appear, then, that every female human being is not necessarily a woman; to be so considered she must share in that mysterious and threatened reality known as femininity.”
Simone De Beauvoir, The Second Sex
LoOk-at-me dips into the surreal focusing on a woman trying to become a woman, experiencing an existential breakdown.
Our show attempts to explore how the concept of the ‘truly feminine’ has been fashioned and a woman is encouraged to enhance her own sexuality by paying attention to her appearance.
Expect a highly stylised piece of theatre with movement – characters with their own body language and their own rules reaching the grotesque – and a great great amount of humour.
Written, Directed and Performed by Chrysanthi Avloniti
Accompanied by Anna Kritikou
