This is live electronic performance as you have never seen it. The Maidens use irons and ironing boards as instruments, as well as visuals, costumes, lighting, dancing, heaps of energy and plenty of ironing puns. It is relevant and thought-provoking, but at the same time wholly entertaining and funny. An award-winning duo, The Ironing Maidens are pressing for progress and putting domestic labour, technology and the history of women in electronic music centre stage.
