Year: 2010

Sugar Coated is a fast-paced and confronting solo performance that explores and explodes female identity and gender politics. Playful, visceral, and unnerving, Sugar Coated showcases sequinned vaginas, videos of divas and porn stars, live drawing, golden catsuits and bath bomb bikinis, set to a pumped soundtrack.

This bold, brash and sensory work celebrates and critiques popular culture, and re-imagines the history and future of feminist body art. Hannah Raisin is interested in the murky grey area of sexuality and identity, the appropriate and the inappropriate, the taboo and the celebrated. Sugar Coated is the old school avant garde’s thrilling newborn.
