Tick-Tock. Tick-Tock.
It’s the biological clock.

A modern-day chick flick (but with a real naked body and honest conversation) about a woman’s quest to unravel the motherhood question: What to do with those (ageing) eggs? How to rewire the brain? Everyone around her seems to be moving and she’s stuck still with the tick tick tock of the biological clock, her own expectations, and everyone else’s too. Featuring intricate video mapping on a naked body, a mini-orchestra of gynaecological instruments and egg recipes in song & dance, stark bollock naked is a tragicomedy about reclaiming the body and resetting the mind.
