    Kelly is sick and tired of being told that now she is a PhD student she no longer reads as working-class. She has learnt to talk the talk and walk the walk of class drag for middle-class people and spaces, to be heard and to be seen. Coz no one takes a CHAV seriously, do they? CHAV is a neon, grey, diamante and sticky solo performance, taking you on an autobiographical journey where Kelly vomits up her anger and frustrations about being a working-class single mum, artist and academic. The piece playfully explores and comments on working-class female identity, and how we both lose and reclaim ourselves through our lived experience of class.

    Developed on Starting Blocks 2018 at CPT.

    "The seed commission has made me feel supported, not just as an artist but also a woman of colour whose story needs to be heard."
