“Your anger is a gift you give to yourself and the world that is yours. In anger, I have lived more fully, freely, intensely, sensitively, and politically. If ever there was a time not to silence yourself, to channel your anger into healthy places and choices, this is it.” (Soraya Chemaly)
Inspired by the times they have been called hysterical, or shrill, or unbalanced, or strident, or crazy, or overemotional, Louise Orwin presents an opportunity and an exorcism: a performative round table event for rage junkies and the rage-inclined.
Joined by a panel of special guests (to be announced soon), Louise will chair a discussion in a round table forum with the audience that explores the things that make us flip our lids and gnash our teeth. Why are we angry now? Is there a place for anger in the fight for equality? And why do toxic cliches and stereotypes around feminine rage exist?
Post-discussion Louise will lead a communal ritual and destruction party, inviting guests and panellists to destroy, smash or exorcise their ragey demons.
Guests will be invited to join in the discussion, to bring items to be destroyed in this final ceremony, or simply to bear witness to a cathartic session like no other.
