Feel the power as soft flesh contends with hard metal in We Are F*cked.
This new performance work by Jo Bannon explores desire, sexuality and neoliberalism.
As the three female performers vibrate, our gaze on them is shaken, shifting what we see. The room quakes with the force of these vibrations until patriarchy wobbles on its precarious perch.
The performance explores the modern feminist experience of personal, psychological and political penetration in this melodramatic opera.
We Are Fucked premiered at Arnolfini in Bristol, and was presented at Southbank Centre’s Unlimited Festival 2018. It will tour in 2019.
