Presented by Tom Ross-Williams and Oonagh Murphy
Terrorism isn’t the problem. Men are.
Weaving narratives of violence, intimacy and gender norms, queer performance makers, Tom Ross-Williams and Oonagh Murphy offer a fresh perspective on the critique of gender inequality. Give Me Your Skin encourages the audience to actively resist stereotypes, moving out of the realm of discourse and into the mode of action. What if patriarchy was a game and we could break the rules?
