In the grand tradition of literary terrorism, Hannah Silva rips up her copy of Fifty Shades of Grey.

Surrounded by the crumpled pages she attempts to put the female body back together, rewiring the defunct language of erotica to investigate the final years of Kathy Acker — ‘high priestess of punk’. A journey through texts and voices pregnant with pleasure and pain, mothers and babies, domination and submission. In a performance as strange as it is beautiful, we discover there are no safe words.

 

A whip-smart, irresistibly seductive tour de force from the always astonishing Hannah Silva: a high-risk entanglement of limbs and lines, a restless toss-and-turn of tongue meeting text in the heat of strangeness and the dark heart of desire – Chris Goode

A remarkable piece, richly suggestive, enveloping and sensual but also smart and edgy enough to leave the odd papercut! – Maddy Costa

Compelling, at times moving, beautiful and mysterious, touching deeply on human experience on the edge of life and death, what is impossible to understand and what is known. Thank you. Diane visited The Rosemary Branch on 26 Nov 2016

Thought-provoking and strange, but also at times stunningly beautiful, I thought about this show long after I had left the room. Hannah Silva is always clever and always inventive and always engaged with the world. Rachel visited The Rosemary Branch on 25 Nov 2016

Dreadful play. Felt like a self indulgent whim of the performer with very level to give the audience. I kept waiting for some wonderful insight but none. It was also depressing. Clara visited The Rosemary Branch on 22 Nov 2016
