An acclaimed performance artist from Liverpool is bringing her powerful show to venues across the country, shining the spotlight on issues that queer woman face on a daily basis.

Barely Visible by Rowena Gander is an empowering physical solo performance that explores “sexualisation, (fe)male gaze and what it really feels like to live in the shadows”.

With incredible strength, a 100-kilo vertical pole, and a lot of humour, this powerful solo performance covers identity, objectification and what it is to be a gay, ‘barely visible’ woman in a raw and physical journey of empowerment.

The show incorporates elements of physical theatre, pole and contemporary dance, with Rowena, and acclaimed physical theatre director, Elinor Randle, bringing playfulness, authenticity, and boldness to a mesmerising work.

Rowena has developed a reputation over the past seven years as a performer who creates work that is accessible, powerful, empowering to audiences, and thought provoking.
