Choreography: Katherina Radeva

In 40/40, Katherina Radeva celebrates her 40 years as a woman, a migrant and an artist. Supported by three female choreographers – Liz Aggiss, Lucy Suggate and Rachel Krische, the production is the result of 40 years of joy, migrancy and hardship, laughter and tears, super tunes and super moves. Join the middle-aged woman revolution by dancing, claiming and reclaiming the beautiful, glorious and messy complexities of womanhood. From the little girl dancing at her parents’ student parties, to the teenage rhythm gymnast who was body-shamed, to the creative who refuses to be categorised, we see a choreography comprising all the joys and sorrows of 40 years. Katherina Radeva is an irresistible performer whose authenticity and generosity shine in this life-affirming piece.
