Sex, Art and the Art of Survival

A rollercoaster of laughter and art fused together, this show is hilarious, sometimes outrageous and saucy, but always inspiring. Helen , a former art historian (PhD, turned comedian, with Ukrainian, Russian and English ancestry, will take you on a fascinating journey with the help of her curated gallery of art masterpieces.

After a serious brush with cancer, Helen managed to turn herself from a victim into a victorious survivor. The secrets of how to get yourself out of the garbage bin of life will be revealed!

Helen is disarmingly honest and direct, she will make you belly laugh at our common human flaws and strengths, and all with the loud and infectious joy for life only a Slavic woman can provide.
