About The snake bites the hardest when it knows it is dying

In April 2018, Desislava Ivancheva and Biliana Petrova, mayor and deputy mayor of a major area of Sofia, were arrested in the city centre, in an operation worthy of Hollywood. They remained in the street for hours, chained and without access to a lawyer… or a glass of water. Their story of alleged bribery and local government corruption has galvanized the Bulgarian public and split the country. Who should be trusted: the State or those captured by it? The snake bites.. will be a devised, documentary-style event, shedding light on the surreal world of Bulgarian politics and the strength of women’s words. This is the piece’s very first public work-in-progress sharing. Age Recommendation: 14+ This show contains strong language and references to violence.
