“That was the exact moment I knew something was different. That was when I woke up.”

  • Tess_edit_2_gallery

Imagine you have a birthmark on your face. You’ve had it all your life. You’ve had to put up with people staring, pointing and asking questions. Sometimes it makes you feel like a monster. Sometimes it makes you feel beautiful. But now you are finally on your way to accepting it. And you want to talk about it.

Performance collective O&O present The Way I Look, a new piece of physical theatre that explores the relationship between identity and appearance drawing from the personal stories of people with facial birthmarks and scars. Funny and bold, The Way I Look tells their stories and their struggle to define themselves beyond their parents’ love and concern. We see the experiences that carve their journey to finding their place in the world. Energetic, evocative and uncompromisingly honest, The Way I Look is a story for anyone who has ever felt different.

O&O is a new collective of performance artists established by Marina O’Shea and Tessa Gaukroger, best known for their work as comedy duo O&O. Their previous work saw them nominated for Best New Act at both Bath Comedy Festival and London Sketchfest in 2015, and they received the Spirit of The Fringe Award at Bedfringe 2016.

Supported by the Cygnet Theatre, Changing Faces, Centre For Appearance Research (UWE),Let's Face It Support Network, Spike Island and Brandhaus.
