||‘SL*T’ is an exploration of the way women’s bodies are policed in the public and private sphere, the conflicting messages sent about body image and sexuality by the media and society and the violence faced by modern women in daily life. It will comprise verbatim materials, spoken word and movement sequences collected and developed throughout our Research and Development stage from local women and organisations. The interview testimony has been put straight into the play, putting women’s voices at the forefront. Performing with a strong group of female actors we will shout, scream and whisper the words of real women and ourselves, responding to a culture that polices our bodies and expects us to be both desirable and pure at the same time. We will protect the identity of those involved, allowing their words to be heard without repercussion in a safe, empowering environment.
||Accessible entrance; level access seating available. Toilets on ground floor but no handrails & limited in space. No hearing loop or BSL interpreter. Please book in advance or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any accessibility requirements so we can reserve specific seats for you & your party and try to accommodate your requirements.
||The Shrieking Sisters are a not-for profit, female-led theatre company based in York. We believe theatre is an instrument of social change and want to represent voices of those who feel marginalised by society, bring community to the isolated and create strong, female-led theatre that doesn’t f*** about. 40% profits to the sexual abuse charity ‘Survive’ plus donations on the night.
