I am my own lover.
You deserve to miss me.
Thanks for the fantasies.
I am the same person I was when I was seven, only taller.
A long passionate snogging session.
Vulnerability is not vulnerable.
Say I’m enough.
I’m Not Going To Lie To You is a solo exploration into female performativity, lust and uncontrollable desire.
“A FABULOUSLY INTIMATE, POLISHED SHOW, BOTH ENGAGING AND ORIGINAL, WITH A SENSE OF VULNERABILITY AND HONESTY THAT WE COULD CONNECT TO.”
Tessa Redman returns to BATS after a successful premiere season at the 2021 New Zealand Fringe Festival. This redevelopment will be an ode to self-love, to romanticism, to the bedroom. The dance we have been dreaming to perform since we were born.
Be prepared for some raw, over-dramatic, sexy goodness in the form of a dance theatre explosion. An absurd, ridiculous, heartfelt investigation delving into what it is to be in love, to be wanted and to be alone.
