A LADY DROWNS

In A Lady Drowns Victoria Abbott explores the urge to embody a feminine performative dress with the aggressively passive use of space. Based on an incident on the floor of a bar in 2006, A Lady Drowns is just a woman on the floor, in space.
‘She won’t get up’  ‘Does she want to dance?’
‘What does she want down there?’

Borrowing images of women from the canon, but really just lying on the floor, Victoria drowned herself in space live, each night, in a different public place.

Pawa runs on the contributions of our event goers and public funding. 

We believe performance art should be assible to everyone, thats why majority of our shows are open to the public, however if you have funds to spare please consider contributing.
