In collaboration with the celebrated Clod Ensemble, Must sees New York performance artist Peggy Shaw take the audience on a journey across the landscape of her own body. 

Renowned for her own gender-bending autobiographical work, in Must Shaw recounts her extraordinary experiences of the medical profession from her current perspective as a 65-year-old lesbian grandmother.

Must weaves together the stories of a lifetime – giving birth on the way to Woodstock, her mother’s electric shock treatment in 1950s America, the loss of a loved one – with projected microscopic images and live musicians performing a powerful score for piano, double bass and violin.
