Tues 26th Nov: The Frog Princess Punked

Info: A punk fairytale for adults with story, music, and live projections. What happens when Ivan marries a frog? Big sounds, a wicked racket! Urban meets forest. Patriarchy meets feminism. Baba Yaga meets Koschey the Deathless! The Frog Princess Punked is funny, feminist, dark, and definitely for adults only!

Pioneering storyteller Sally-Pomme Clayton and girl punk band, The Swamp Girls, create a hybrid hullabaloo of spoken word, distorted guitars, scorching drums, riotous songs, set in a shifting collage of surreal projections v-jayed live! The raw power of punk explodes a Russian fairytale, exploring the dangers of annexing the wild and the wisdom of liberating the female.
