From beauty product addict to born-again feminist, choreographer and comedian Sarah Blanc takes you on her hilarious journey to growing her Feminist Boner.

My Feminist Boner grapples with extreme societal pressures on the female body, and the conflict women feel between indulging in the beauty industry and maintaining their feminist ideals. Why does the world place such unattainable beauty standards on women? What does it mean to be a feminist today?

With honest confessionals, a show-and-tell of beauty contraptions, conversations with her feminist-hating Dad, progressively grotesque movement and satirical humour; Blanc reveals her anger at the commodification of women’s bodies and exposes the absurdity of the beauty industry.

This show contains props, movement and haiku written by her pop loving younger self.


"Gloriously Unsubtle"
Luke Jennings, The Observer

★★★★
"Gloriously shambolic and stupid show with inner depths"
Simon Topping, The Review Hub Brighton Fringe 2018

"Could get an audience to eat out of her hand or who knows what other body part"
Donald Hutera

★★★★
"This corker of a production is relatable, playful and will make your cheeks as pink as the products with laughter."
The Review Hub, Brighton Fringe 2018
