One Woman Wrestling Invites…
by Lisa Kendall

Lisa has realised that 33 years of dancing, practicing, making, performing and being are in danger of becoming wedged, stuck inside her.

One Woman Wrestling Invites… invites you to be with Lisa, and dance pals Leen and Rachel, as they navigate the transient energies of this critical impasse, wrestling with what was there and what is now, reflecting as they dance, upon the facts and fictions of living.
