WEIRD WEEKEND III: The Other Side of The Underneath
Sat 29 October 2022
The Other Side of the Underneath
Jane Arden’s violent and powerful adaptation of her work with the Holocaust women’s theatre troupe looks into the mind of a woman labelled schizophrenic and finds, not madness, but tortured sexual guilt created by the taboos of society.
“Funerals masquerade as weddings; women masturbate and vomit in churches; they murder each other with rubber weapons; they are revered as saints while being buried alive and crucified.” Kier-La Janisee, House of Psychotic Women.
Screening as part of Weird Weekend’s House of Psychotic Women strand.
