In collaboration with the celebrated UK-based Clod Ensemble, legendary New York performance artist Peggy Shaw, accompanied by a live band, takes the audience on a journey across the landscape of her own body. Renowned for her own gender bending autobiographical work, she recounts her extraordinary experiences of the medical profession from her current perspective as a 65-year-old lesbian grandmother. MUST weaves together the stories of a lifetime - giving birth on the way to Woodstock, her mother’s electric shock treatment in 1950s America, the loss of a loved one – performed to a powerful original score and a breathtaking backdrop of microscopic images.
