Natalie Wardle’s Control Pant Symphony at Lancashire Fringe Festival


Love a bit of live art, me. And I’ve got this lovely, engaging, funny piece about beauty standards and body positivity by Natalie Wardle in Lancashire Fringe Festival.

Control Pant Symphony is a performance which looks at how women constrict their bodies to fit in with society’s ideal body types, exploring shape wear and tape that is placed over nipples to both cover and repress their form.

It’ll be amazing to see the work performed in the historic, beautiful space of Preston’s Harris Museum.

Natalie is a performance and visual artist from Manchester who has been selected to work with Random Acts North (Tyneside Cinema, True North, HOME) to develop Control Pant Symphony.

Her work has been seen on Channel 4’s Random Acts and at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London. And this performance is part of developing her work into live-art performance, which has been performed at HOME (Manchester), Word of Warning – hÅb events, Live Art Bistro (Leeds) and is scheduled to perform at Camden’s People Theatre (London) in June.

See Control Pant Symphony by Natalie Wardle at Harris Museum, Market Square, Preston PR1 2PP  on Saturday May 18, at 7.45pm.

Lancashire Fringe Festival is a FREE event. The festival operates a Pay What You Decide model, where audiences can make an optional donation after the show. No tickets required. Just turn up!
