Ursula Martinez: My Stories, Your Emails
Wed 3 - Sat 6 Oct 2012
WARNING: MAY CONTAIN REALLY BORING NUDITY
Ursula Martinez has written some true stories. After her infamous magic striptease act Hanky Panky was illicitly posted online some strangers started sending her unbelievable emails.
Following a smashingly successful season in 2010, Martinez (star of La Clique and La Soirée) invites you to meet the ordinary and extraordinary characters in her life and in her inbox.
Combining stand-up, live art and character comedy, My Stories, Your Emails is a comical and uncompromising portrait of Ursula and an investigation into confession, obsession, miscommunication, relationships, loneliness, sex, identity and what happens when your private parts go public!
Originally commissioned by Barbican B.I.T.E.10 and IQUN international Festival.
“This is very funny, as well as disturbing in its illustration of the perils of unsought celebrity. Martinez has turned unsolicited idolatry into a meditation on misunderstandings, loneliness and the sexual politics of cyberspace.” - London Evening Standard
"Wonderfully funny...humane, observant and highly original." - The Telegraph
“Martinez’s stage performances look deceptively simple; but this is a contrivance that allows Martinez to undertake highly complex investigations into reality and fiction, autobiography and lies, and the nature of identity itself, her own most of all." -The Guardian
Please note this performance is recommended for 18+.
