  • Attenborough Arts Centre Lancaster Road Leicester, England, LE1 7HB United Kingdom (map)
“One of the new, intriguing voices of her time.”
— Jean 'Binta' Breeze

A theatrical poetry show of arrivals, migration and landscapes, written and performed by Lydia Towsey (Show 1 hour duration) alongside a new exhibition of Scott Bridgwood’s figurative paintings (Gallery 3)

What if Venus, the Roman Goddess of love and beauty, washed up on a beach at this moment in time? Experience tales of 21st century women – every-woman, immigrant, traveler, outsider - in a time of social, cultural and political turmoil and change.
