You’ve got a perfect body. Yes, you! Your eye-lashes catch your sweat; you gag when you swallow a fish-bone; you laugh when you get tickled. Step inside The Cubicle – a space where you’re perfect just the way you are.
Developed in collaboration with University of Bath body image researchers, The Cubicle plays host to a programme of approaches to build resilience to marketed ideals of ‘the perfect body’. It doesn’t matter if you’re tall, short, bulging, skinny, hairy, bald, fresh-faced or wrinkly – you can still enjoy all your body has to offer! Sing! Stretch! Dance! Laugh! Dream! Breathe!
At the heart of the pop-up shop is a private walk-in changing cubicle as you would find at the back of any high street clothes shop. However, this is a cubicle with a difference: the site of a short compelling participatory performance starring hiccups, toe-nails, goosebumps and hairy armpits.
Also featuring cafe discussion events with cutting-edge researchers and activists, a programme of free workshops, and an exhibition of work by artist Hollie-Ann Hart – all celebrating our unique and perfect bodies!
The Cubicle installation has been designed and built by visual artist Molly Hawkins.
All events and workshops are free or pay what you can. To book online, follow the links below. Pre-booking is advised but any remaining tickets will be available on the door.
