After a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe and four FOUR STAR reviews, Permanently Visible are bringing their critically acclaimed, Art’s Council England funded show, Hula House to Crossroads Women’s Centre this month.
Hula House - part of Calm Down, Dear the Camden People’s Theatre (CPT) festival of feminist work - is an interactive, site-specific performance, offering an intimate insight into the lives of UK sex workers.
Inspired by true accounts and stories from interviews obtained with sex workers and women at The English Collective of Prostitutes, Hula House is an immersive, interactive performance featuring dark comedy, physical theatre and audience participation, creating the world of a brothel at a site-specific venue.
By meeting the 'real' women behind the stereotypes, Hula House questions why we don't do more to help those in the sex trade. This unique performance will challenge societal ideas of sex workers, inviting audiences to look more closely at a subject often considered taboo.
"A piece that challenges the way women are dehumanised, not only by some men but also the authorities, and asks us to consider how much we participate in this" â â â â The Scotsman, Aug 2015
"A bold, uncompromising piece of theatre... Incredibly brave in its mission. It is well-crafted theatre and I would highly recommend it" - Broadway Baby, Aug 2015
"Brave in its efforts and clever in its execution" â â â â - A Younger Theatre, Aug 2015
"A very intelligent and clever piece of work, ... Although the performance may sometimes make the audience ill at ease, it never goes too far..." â â â â - TV Bomb, Aug 2015
