This empowering show explores female rage and what it means to be a survivor in a post #MeToo world.
Inspired by ‘final girl theory’ (the last remaining female in classic horror movies) and medical histories of institutionalised women, CRY CRY KILL KILL looks at how female bodies and suffering have been fetishized, pathologized and controlled. Performed by a diverse range of professional queer, trans and femme performers, alongside non-professionals, and in collaboration with a pro-wrestling consultant.
