Bats Theatre

A sometimes sexy, often subversive new theatre work that collides live art, live camera, fake orgasms and real screams.

I am having sex. I am seeing myself have sex.

Is it possible to re-write the sexual scripts we’ve been taught? Can we move past looking and dive headfirst into feeling? In this ambitious new work from Eleanor Bishop, Julia Croft and Karin McCracken, erotic literature, science, memoir and the language of Hollywood film are combined to explore the complexities of female desire.

Performing as one another’s body doubles Julia Croft (Power Ballad, Shortlisted Total Theatre Emerging Performer Award, Edinburgh 2017) and Karin McCracken (Jane Doe, It’s A Trial) enact their memories, fantasies and inherited scripts in a collage of live performance and projection.

Sometimes sexy and often subversive, Body Double collides live art, live camera, fake orgasms and real screams, with direction from acclaimed director Eleanor Bishop (Jane Doe, The PlayGround Collective) and in collaboration with US based performance and media designers Kevin Ramser and Lucy Pope.

R16: Contains sexual content
