"Objective Bodies - The Sanctuary" is a performance piece all about nudity, representation and self-worth. Life modelling in an art class creates a "sanctuary" from normal perceptions of public nudity. But what happens when that art class is moved to a theatre? What then? What rules apply and is the art class scenario still a sanctuary?

"Objective Bodies - The Sanctuary" is a theatre performance piece which can last from an hour to 90 minutes and contains a Q & A afterwards and the opportunity for the audience to draw if they wish. 

The performance can be booked by telephoning Ratchet Theatre on 07909 621438 or e-mailing
