NAKED LADIES-a new solo show written and performed by Thea Fitz-James-is that moment when someone tells you that women are naturally secretive. It's the moment they say: women take off their clothes to forget about their fathers. It's locked in the skin: intimate. It's what we are hiding when we show all. It asks, what does it mean to be truly exposed? Like a TED talk that falls apart, Fitz-James gives a performative and visual history of naked ladies in performance. She brings an array of naked ladies to the stage, from fleshy-forty-year-old at the YMCA to the platinum pussy on your computer screen; both the the pro-sex Miley Cyrus feminists and the oil-painted goddesses. Between the naked and the nude, between forgetting fathers and remembering mothers, past sexual stigma and personal secrets, NAKED LADIES weaves personal narrative, art history and performance theory to ask why women get naked on stage. Why, where and for whom.
