Basement Theatre

"I am looking for a (body) language which exists outside the patriarchal definitions. Of course, that is not possible. But who is any longer interested in the possible." - Kathy Acker

Part performance lecture, part karaoke party, deconstructing gendered linguistic histories and ripping apart language to find a new articulation of pleasure, anger and femaleness. We’re smashing it all to pieces and starting again. We’re behaving badly. We’re singing too many power ballads.

Created and performed by Julia Croft Directed by Nisha Madhan.

“Power Ballad is a revolution: winking while bringing both form and content to its knees in a way that is deeply, deeply hopeful.” - The Pantograph Punch

Power Ballad has been selected to travel to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe - Your support of this season will help make it happen!
