Heather Bandenburg is a writer and performance artist who specialises in making life affirming, personal, funny work about her obsessions – currently, Cher, wrestling and being a parent. She trained as a wrestler with Lucha Britannia from 2012 onwards, performing across London at monthly sold out shows for venues such as York Hall - she is co-founder of queer wrestling group FIST CLUB. From 2016 onwards she began to write about wrestling (the Guardian, DIVA, the Independent); and in 2019 she published her first book on the subject, Unladylike, A Grrls Guide to Wrestling (Unbound) that Mick Foley loves. In 2018 she founded cabaret night I Need to Cher, part long-form TED talk, part queer homecoming; entirely about the life of the pop icon Cher (Camden People’s Theatre, Latitude, The Space, Resistance Gallery, VFD, Old Nuns’ Head). In 2019 she became an arts council funded artist and has since worked on combining her unique, personal brand of story-telling with her wrestling skills. Mummy Vs is her first solo show & has been well received despite coming to fruition during covid where both wrestling and parenting are impossibly hard.
