The Venus Papers is a theatrical poetry show of arrivals, departures and journeys, written and performed by Lydia Towsey, with music and vocals by Dave Dhonau and Ola Szmidt. Plus a talk by writer, performer and co-director of the show Nick Field (with Rachel Mars), and performances by guest poets Helen Ivory and Dzifa Benson who offer their personal takes on the show's themes.
The show presents tales of 21st century women – every-woman, immigrant, refugee, outsider - in a time of social, cultural and political turmoil and change. It is about how we look - at ourselves, at each other, and the world. Part of a national tour funded by Arts Council England.
