Ah, the 90s!

The decade that Shaparak was in her twenties and ‘ladette’ culture ruled the school. The decade when there was nothing to be done but party, and Shaparak found herself flying about London with hope in her heart, a tenner in her pocket and spare knickers in her handbag. In those days, ‘mindfulness’ was making sure you had enough money for the night bus and ‘self-care’ was putting your flat shoes in a handbag.

This work-in-progress is about how we 90s kids are looking to young people to learn how to take care of ourselves.

“Has the crowd in the palm of her hand” – The List

“Makes live comedy thrilling” – Evening Standard

 

PAY WHAT YOU CAN

As part of our wider commitment to making the arts accessible to everyone, all performances at Battersea Arts Centre will now be part of our universal Pay What You Can pricing model.

Once you have chosen your seats, use the drop down to select the price you want to pay. To give you a guide, the drop down will start with the recommended price for each event.

We don’t charge booking or transaction fees, and any amount paid over this will help us continue to make our events accessible to everyone, whilst supporting our activities with artists, young people and our local community.
