Schlock! with Hannah Silva

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.

On 23 November, join Little Atoms and Penned In The Margins at the Rosemary Branch Theatre for a post-show discussion: Would you ban, burn or re-write Fifty Shades of Grey, featuring Katy Evans-Bush (poet and critic; chair), Padraig Reidy (Little Atoms) + Caroline Bird (poet, playwright).
