EGG CHARADE

‘The real strength of the piece…lies in McAtamney and Vallon themselves, performers who don’t shy from approaching the outlandish in the effort to access something meaningful.’ Rachel Donnelly Dublin Dance Festival BLOG

Welcome to the world of Peggy & Peggy. Guessing games, intriguing situations and a healthy dose of irony are served up in this road movie-inspired performance. Egg Charade confronts some of the difficulties and pressures young women can face when deciding whether to have a baby. Intimate and revealing, this duet combines lightness and intense physical effort with a wry sense of humour. 

Contains nudity (and bowling).
