Understanding body identity

Watermelon Bathtub presents the award-winning show “Bodies” at Philly PACK, 233 Federal St., on Dec. 17 at 6:30 p.m..

Watermelon Bathtub is a partnership of circus artists working to explore pathways of storytelling by understanding and working with body identity and movement to reflect on social constructions in communities. 

Tickets cost $25 with discounts available at https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/5600805.

In this show, the cast and audience are challenged to ask, what is the relationship that they have with their body? “Bodies” is a cabaret-style circus piece that explores the dynamic relationships people have with their bodies, with emphasis on reducing stigma by showcasing authentic, relatable and tangible first-person narratives that combine spoken word and circus movement. 
Stories showcase narratives from various artists whose experiences are very often not told on stage. The performance increases access by creating audio transcripts of spoken word and written movement descriptions in a digital program.
