Trainwreck

Trainwreck is a devised puppet/object theatre piece which provokes and pokes fun at the archive of literary dead white guys and their objectification of women’s bodies. This performative literary review fires back at the canon, makes some serious feminist revisions, and asks really important questions like: Why can’t Sherlock Holmes find any women? Why is everyone a sad orphan? Is being locked in an attic advanced hide and go seek? Does Anna Karenina have good orgasms? Do we have to sit through 54 chapters of emotional abuse to find out that expectations are not, in fact, so great? Are we willing to re-envision a canon?
