Feminism has fought big, brutal battles in history: for the right to work, the right to vote, and for our bodies to be our own. So now, as the dust settles, what might a new war cry look like?
Alice Birch’s REVOLT. SHE SAID. REVOLT AGAIN. is a subversive, provocative and darkly comic manifesto that sees us return to our original stomping ground, with Virginia Frankovich making her directorial debut for the company.
Responding to Laurel Thatcher Ulrich’s provocation that “well-behaved women seldom make history”, this series of wrecking-ball vignettes shatters the invisible power of language in shaping the world around us. Exhilaratingly wild, fearless and playful, this is feminism at its messy edge.
Presented as part of Auckland Fringe Festival from 21 February to 12 March 2017. For the full programme, visit aucklandfringe.co.nz.
