Routestock are proud to present and support This Is What The Menopause Looks Like A celebratory exhibition of photography, film, interviews and live performance.
Catrin Osborne an artist and director of circus theatre is on a mission to share the realities – good and bad – of going through menopause in an exhibition of photography, films, interviews and live performance.
Catrin travelled the UK meeting menopausal women and recording their positive and negative experiences of the menopause. She wanted to celebrate women going through post and peri menopause and give them a voice. As women we will all go through the menopause, but like many other experiences women in our culture go through it is still hidden, secretive and shameful.
Osborne & What are a community arts organisation, making socially engaged work addressing universal themes that explore what it means to be human. Formally based in London, we are excited that we have recently located to Ramsgate.
We respond to important themes and local communities to create installations using photography, sound and interviews addressing issues which matter to those communities. We direct, design and produce circus theatre shows, and collaborate with other companies and youth community groups. We make theatre shows using circus skills and techniques to help tell stories, and using circus equipment as theatrical set to create other worlds.
Our shows are devised by the company and collaborators, use original soundtracks, and involve both actors and circus performers working to their individual strengths. We believe circus and movement can sometimes portray emotion better than words alone.
