Do you remember when you stopped mucking about?
Paloma has always mucked about with Pichón. They run wild. They dress up like tigers, flamenco dancers, queens, kings, rabbits and Lady Gaga. Life is fun and funny and a little bit loopy. Until one day a blinding white light lands on Paloma. Embarrassed and confused, her days of dressing up, running wild, and mucking about with Pichón seem to be over….
It’s good to be ambitious, but not too much
It’s good to be attractive, but not too much
It’s good to be heard, but not too much
Slowly Paloma begins to realise all the things she has lost. Created with an international ensemble, Muckers is a quest for self-acceptance, with original songs and quite a lot of Spanish. Side-splitting and poignant in equal measure, it brings us face-to-face with the curious invisible forces which are acting upon us when we don’t even know it. Join Paloma on a magnetic, captivating, and mucky journey to battle the patriarchy. There’s a name for girls like you.
