Figs in Wigs
Figs in Wigs are a UK based female led performance company. For the last 10 years they have been making epic, genre-bending performances that sit somewhere in between live art, music, theatre, comedy and dance. They make work collaboratively with a DIY approach - they write, direct, choreograph, compose and perform all of their creative output.
Their work is recklessly joyful, highly visual and unashamedly revels in tackiness and trashiness. With an irreverent sense of humour they use puns, bad jokes and pop culture references to charm and disarm audiences of all ages.
They make performance work for main house stages, studio spaces, festivals, clubs and cabaret spaces. They have received commissions from HOME Manchester, London School of Economics, Historic Royal Palaces, Cambridge Junction & Selfridges.
Their most recent full length theatre show, Little Wimmin has received critical acclaim and sold out mid-scale main houses across the country including Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, Bristol Old Vic & Unity Theatre Liverpool.
‘Boisterously charismatic...practically radioactive.’
‘Colourful, irreverent and unashamedly daft. Thank God for Figs in Wigs.’
