Live at LICA present: Peggy Shaw/Clod Ensemble

Date: 8 March 2011 Time: 8.00 pm

Venue: Nuffield Theatre

In collaboration with the celebrated Clod Ensemble, legendary New York performance artist Peggy Shaw takes the audience on a journey across the landscape of her own body.

Renowned for her gender bending autobiographical work, Shaw 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 - with projected microscopic images, and live musicians performing a powerful score for piano, double bass and violin.

"Exquisite… This is open-heart surgery of the artistic kind." The Guardian

"Powerful, honest and life-affirming." Time Out

The event is followed by a post-show event including critical perspectives on the show, and a discussion with Peggy Shaw, chaired by Professor Elaine Aston.
