AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Lola’s a woman on the edge. In fact, she’s gone over the edge, but she’s not quite sure where she’s landed. It could be the Hudson River, off the edge of Manhattan, or it might be considerably further. The only thing that’s clear is that nothing will ever be the same again. A foiled suicide attempt? Or the beginning of a slow bathtub to Australia? Leaving the familiar may not be as easy as it looks, but Lola’s going to give it a hell of a try. This work brings together writing for performance and feminist solo performance as political and personal works of transgression in both academic and artistic terms. It’s textual body as a script is a fully-realised work of creative writing, and its prior (and potentially future) life as a performance bluerprint reminds readers of the dual nature of writing for performance, and of research creation – itself a deeply personal and creative act.'
