I am looking for a 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 by Julia Croft (If There’s Not Dancing at the Revolution, I’m Not Coming) and Nisha Madhan.
