Resist. Relapse. Repeat. In a joyfully anarchic piece of gig theatre, three performers from different cultures play the game of being "beautiful". Told through a series of games, songs, dance and spoken word, Game Face is a dynamic and explosive critique of oppressive beauty ideals and the effort it takes to keep resisting them. Drawing on personal experiences of eating disorders, colourism, and the impact on relationships, Game Face mocks the absurdities of our beauty myths, and the lengths we go to in trying to beat them.
