"A CALCULATED ATTACK TO THE PATRIARCHAL CONSTRUCTION OF FEMININITY. THIS SHOW WILL MAKE YOU FEEL STICKY, ELATED AND EMPOWERED."
(Dr Francesco Ventrella)
“TICKED ALL THE BOXES AS A SENSORY PIECE OF THEATRE, SURREAL AND SASSY AS FUCK.”
"I HAVE NEVER EVER EVER SEEN A WOMAN LIKE THAT, EVEN THOUGH WE ALL HAVE THAT FORCE, AGGRESSION AND VIGOUR INSIDE US DEEP DOWN WANTING TO BURST OUT. IT IS NEVER SHOWN IN FILM, THEATRE OR EVEN PORN… SHE HAD THE AUDIENCE IN A TRANCE."
Did You Get That From Your Mother? is Edythe’s first full length solo show. The earliest iteration (then titled The Cabinet Of Curiosities) was commissioned by SPILL festival’s National Platform 2016 where it premiered. After its success Edythe received a grant from Arts Council England to develop the show over a series of residencies at The Bike Shed Theatre, New River Studios, Live Art Bistro and The Marlborough Theatre Brighton. Did You Get That From Your Mother? showed at The Marlborough Theatre, The Cube Bristol, Live Art Bistro, Camden People’s Theatre London as part of Sprint Festival 2017 and Buzzcut Festival 2017. Shorter iterations have shown at Leeds City Museum, Toynbee Studios Steak House Live, The Norwich Arts Centre and Livia Rita's Rewild album launch.
