Cock and Bull

See three females perform their own alternative party conference, in a response to the empty promises of politicians.

Originally conceived for the eve of the 2015 UK general election, Cock and Bull explores power, voice, agency and sustainability, using the most heard phrases from Conservative government rhetoric. Their aim: to dismantle and redress the dominant messages in politics, and the lack of meaning within.

Giving voice to the deep discontent of an increasingly divided society, this work is part-protest, part-catharsis, part-exorcism. It becomes, in part, a demonstration of togetherness.

a show that sweats out the toxins of divisive austerity. A blistering, beautiful act*****
