About the event
Performed and co-written by Viv Gordon, Cutting Out is a powerful and inspirational testament of one woman's journey as a survivor, from experiencing abuse to finding a community, connection and a sense of belonging. Viv describes it as an autobiography through the lens of her hands, which she tells with honesty and care, humour and tenderness.
The show tells Viv's 1 in 11 million story with comedy, song and movement to music specifically composed for Cutting Out by Thomas Johnson. Viv shares the stage with a number of beautiful life-sized cut-outs of children as well as chains of paper dolls holding hands in solidarity, designed by illustrator Imogen Harvey-Lewis.
The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Viv Gordon and show producer Emma Bettridge.
Running time: film 45 min + 30 min Q&A
Age guidance: 14+
You can contribute to the project by downloading and cutting out templates of paper dolls and to post them on social media as a sign of solidarity. Join the campaign: https://www.vivgordoncompany.co.uk/join-the-campaign.html
