This performance is part of the Sexuality Summer School (SSS), organised annually since 2008 by the Centre for the Study of Sexuality and Culture (CSSC). The SSS brings international scholars and artists to Manchester for a series of public events that run alongside its programme of postgraduate workshops.
RUFF is renowned performer’s Peggy Shaw’s tribute to those who have kept her company these 68 years, a lament for the absence of those who disappeared into the dark holes left behind by her stroke in 2011 and a celebration that her brain is able to fill the blank green screens with new insights.
RUFF will be followed by a post-show Q&A called ‘Ask the Doctor’, with local stroke clinician Dr Khalil Kawafi, when guests will have the opportunity to ask questions about stroke.
