A modern-day chick flick about the relentless tick tick tock of the biological clock, but with a real naked body, honest conversation & a side of poached eggs. Featuring stunning video mapping and live-scored using a mini-orchestra of gynaecological instruments, stark bollock naked is a tragicomedy about reclaiming the body, resetting the mind and what to do with it all.
Larisa Faber is a migrant actor, writer and maker. She was born in Romania, grew up in Luxembourg and trained at Drama Centre London. Her writing has explored ageing, fertility and freedom of choice, and migration. She loves odd humour and weird musicals.
Her work has been supported by venues across Europe, such as Camden People's Theatre London (U.K.), neimënster (Luxembourg), Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe (Germany), Théâtre d'Esch (Luxembourg) and Kaunas City Chamber Theatre (Lithuania).
She is particularly committed to working with other female-identifying migrant artists and to keep making work linking the U.K. and continental Europe.
