And now for something completely different …
HACK & BACKSHIT GO CAVING (IN THE NETHER REGIONS.)
A PUPPETRY PERFORMANCE WITH A TWIST!
In this quirkily surreal tale, DIY (Dyke-It-Yourself) experts and enthusiasts, Hack & Bashit, are summoned by mysterious female forces from afar. A mystical Greek beetle leads the pair on a journey across Europe to the isle of Lesvos and to a vulvic cave of mythical proportions where DIY tasks await. Hack & Bashit create a half-hour animated world of hope and humour combining puppetry projections, performance and some delightfully live music.
Hilary is a clown, researcher and lecturer in physical and visual theatre, street arts, rebel clown and a Dr. of Walking.
