Róisín and Chiara return with a whirlwind of synchronised, audience-tickling, stream-of-consciousness mischief. Things get steamy as they try to figure out what all this ‘sexy’ business is about. Who said we had to be ‘hot’ in the first place? Fierce, flamboyant and freakishly irreverent; like nothing you’ve seen before. ‘Sensual, spiritual, baffling, staggering… hilariously unpredictable’ ★★★★★ (ThreeWeeks).
‘Sex on Wheels’ is a deep dive into the cult of ‘hotness’. Lost in a chaos of idealised images Chiara questions whether a face that is two metres longer might make her happier. Will Róisín still be sexy when she has no teeth? Should they consider sharpening their heads into points?
Sex on Wheels is a joyously silly, and ultimately redemptive, take on the pervasive culture of image and hotness which threatens to obscure everything else about being human.
Róisín and Chiara have been performing together since 2012. They have sold out six runs at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, with six different shows. Their work encompasses elements of clown, stand-up comedy and live art. They run a monthly alternative comedy night in North London called ‘Late Night Lounge’. They are also best friends.
