REVOLT. SHE SAID. REVOLT AGAIN.
Monash Meets Malthouse Panel
This disturbing, furious, funny, explosive, contemporary piece of writing hit the stage at the Malthouse Theatre recently (16 June-9 July) and shocked, explored, revolutionised, interrogated and twisted everyday events surrounding language that has reinforced violence against women for centuries and what it means to be a woman in the 21st century.
On the final Saturday before closing, Monash (in partnership with Malthouse) hosted an exceptional, riveting, thought-provoking, hell-bent panel discussion with a phenomenal panel of remarkable women, led by Monash CTP’s very own Stacy Holman-Jones as moderator, as part of the ‘Monash Meets Malthouse’ series.
If you missed the performances and/or the panel discussion you really missed out on something truly remarkable, but never fear, we have the panel discussion here for you to enjoy!
Another exceptional ‘Monash Meets Malthouse’ panel as part of the 2017 season!!
DETAILS OF REVOLT. SHE SAID. REVOLT AGAIN…
Revolt. She said. Revolt again. is a theatrical assault on the language that has reinforced violence against women* for centuries, and an explosion of what womanhood means in the 21st century.
In a series of equally funny and disturbing events – the everyday is turned upside down, dirty talk is stripped naked, a marriage proposal is interrogated, and nudity is embraced in the dairy aisle – playwright Alice Birch rallies language to revolt upon itself, commanding it to bear arms against the conventions of work, sex, motherhood, aging, and love.
Revolt is a powerful new work of contemporary writing, and a welcome lesson in disobedience—it twists words into action and holds language to account, in an effort to finally make change happen.
* Just look up ‘shrill’ in the Oxford English Dictionary. Go on.
YOU ARE EXPECTED TO BEHAVE… USE THE RIGHT WORDS. ACT APPROPRIATELY. DON’T BREAK THE RULES. JUST BEHAVE. THIS PLAY IS NOT WELL BEHAVED.
