A woman alone in her bathroom – what does it mean to be clean and what does it mean to be dirty?
Sanitise is a highly visual theatre show coming to Big Burns Supper on Tuesday 27th January at 1pm. This is first stop in a nationwide Scottish tour, following a successful Fringe run in August where the production won a Scotsman Fringe First Award and was nominated for an Arches Brick Award.
Set in the most private of places, where dirt can be flushed away in an instant, Sanitise is a theatrical journey through the fantasy world of one woman alone in her bathroom. Combining physical theatre, dance, music and illustration, Sanitise is a quirky, imaginative production without words, looking at a part of life we never talk about and follows one woman's quest for domestic and sexual liberation. Disgusted by much of the outside world, her bathroom has become a sanctuary of cleanliness and an unlikely venue for self-expression. But there is something dark living beneath the bath and as her inner and outer life is revealed we discover a woman torn between fantasy and fear as she negotiates her relationship with literal and figurative filth. What does it mean to be clean and what does it mean to be dirty?
Sanitise was created by two young Edinburgh based artists, Caitlin Skinner and Melanie Jordan, who aim to make bold visual theatre which opens up the audience's imaginations, their sense of humour and ultimately their minds.
Sanitise will play at Electric Theatre Workshop on Tuesday 27th January at 1pm, as part of Big Burns Supper. Tickets can be bought at the Box Office at 28 Munches Street or online at here
