In the most private of spaces you can flush away dirt in an instant…
One woman alone in her bathroom. 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.
Sanitise is a playful and original production without words combining physical theatre, dance, music and multimedia to explore our most intimate insecurities and fantasies. What is clean and what is dirty?
