Armed with pick ‘n’ mix, politics and UK Garage, award-winning performance-maker Holly Beasley-Garrigan wants to talk about the fetishisation of the feral female.
Opal Fruits is about class, nostalgia and five generations of women from one council estate in South London. An anarchic reimagining of the self-congratulatory solo show and a wry interrogation of faux-working-class cultural trends. In 1998 Opal Fruits changed their name to... we don't say that name round here.
