Faber's play addresses the pressures of living as a woman and fighting against the preconceived and essentialist notions of womanhood and motherhood.

Tick-Tock. Tick-Tock. It's the biological clock. Stark bollock naked is a modern-day chick flick but with a real naked body, honest conversation and a side of poached eggs.

Performed by Larisa Faber and Catherine Kontz (on percussive gynecological instruments), the play ponders the thorny conundrum of a woman's quest to unravel the motherhood question: where does her own desires end, and biological programming begin? What to do with those (ageing) eggs? How has she, perhaps, been conditioned by the avalanche of images projected onto her, ever since she was a little girl? Would she have had different thoughts if she'd seen different images?

Everyone around her seems to be moving and she's stuck still with the tick tick tock of the biological clock, her own expectations, and everyone else’s too. How to rewire the brain? Reframe the conversation in her mind?

Featuring stunning video mapping by Louise Rhoades-Brown and live-scored using a mini-orchestra of gynecological instruments, stark bollock naked is a tragicomedy about reclaiming the body, resetting the mind and how to screw the biological clock.
