HERSTORY : LEADING LADIES, Kelly embodies the world’s most famous leading femmes. They led armies and caused revolutions, were politically blackballed, or had lifestyles so debauched that empires tumbled in their wake.
Not for the faint-of-heart, Herstory is a sexy hour of raunch that features everything from Marie Antoinette desecrating a cake and Lady Diana attacking London, King Kong-style, to a dope addicted Queen Victoria and a very pissed off Julia Gillard.
Kelly provokes questions about feminism, the media’s portrayal of women and society’s ability to demonise people using comedy, strip tease, saucy stories, dance, aerials, magic and puppetry.
Kelly said, “After finding the rumours that circulated about women in power so ridiculous, I decided to make a show ridiculing the ridicule itself! My style is fun and sexy, but with a strong and empowering message as it seems the ridicule continues in today’s world.”
