Wed 5 - Thu 6 Oct at 9pm
Presented by Rose Biggin & Keir Cooper
BADASS GRAMMAR is a theatrical collaboration between a pole dancer and a guitarist, a composition in exploded view. With a mischievous agenda, the performance invites in the mucky subjects of shame, power & privilege. And takes them dancing.
Peering down at the nuts and bolts, the muscle and bone. The pole dislocated, the guitar unfretted. Sparkling, witty, savage, fabulous: we draw on the invisible histories of our disciplines and are building a new one. Starting now. Come with us.
