How far can art go? How far does it have to go? Performance artist Pippa Bacca set out in a wedding gown to hitchhike from Milan to Jerusalem in 2008 in order to take a stand for peace and trust among people. Along the way, she was raped and murdered. The first part of The Bride and Goodnight Cinderella focusses on Bacca and other female artists who have used their own bodies as a means of protest and a target. Brazilian theatre maker Carolina Bianchi reports these women’s stories on stage while knockout drops that she has taken – in Brazil, they are known as ‘Goodnight Cinderella’ – are taking their effect. Bianchi loses consciousness and the eight performers of her collective Cara de Cavalo take over. Vulnerable and defenceless, she is utterly exposed to them. Bianchi deploys her own body in a performance that has triggered debate around the globe.
