Amy and Rosana are sisters. They are both feminists.
In Sister they present a bold and unflinching examination of themselves: their family bonds, shared experiences, and the differing paths their lives have taken, revealing everything in this powerful, joyous and moving performance, exploring female sexual identity, feminism and choice.
Sister weaves together their autobiographical stories of growing up, individual contrasting sexual experiences, pole dancing, lap dancing and childhood family videos in an intimate strip club setting, which they inhabit, subvert and eventually deconstruct.
Developed in association with The Arches, supported by National Theatre Studio, Battersea Arts Centre and The Yard.

This season we are really excited to be working with Dialogue Theatre Club – a post-show discussion for people who hate post-show discussions. It works more like a book group: the people who made the show aren’t present, so you can talk freely about what you thought of it and hear how other people responded, without needing to think of the ‘right’ questions to get the artists explaining their work.
Plus we provide drink and nibbles: what’s not to like?
This free event will be taking place in the pub downstairs after the show.
