“Tough Bitch, Our Bitch, Who's That Bitch?! Listen, Bitch!"

The Working Bitches

Powerful, confronting performance theatre

The Working Bitches is a collective of friends and allies, deliberately energising their bodies as sites of worship and wildness. This high-energy performance will revel in a reach towards the physical limits of storytelling, sharing and sex.

As the Bitches fly in the face of the 'well behaved woman' trope, they refuse to be shamed for their bodies; activating them to create an uncensored, unapologetic performance and installation. Join them and reclaim the space to celebrate women's aliveness.

More about...

The Working Bitches 

The Working Bitches are a group of friends, sisters and artists who have seized this opportunity to play, and make, together, in the desire to mingle and strengthen our individual and collective voices. They have been working individually through dance, theatre, party and poetry and have come together here in protest of a world that does not yet hold women's pain. They are here in allyship and visibility and invite you into their cauldron of possibility.
