Description

Join us for Wilding, a darkly humorous and politically charged performance exploring radical protest and feminism by Ildikó Rippel and Emma Bourke, a descendant of the militant suffragette Emily Wilding Davison.

Facing the current threat by the UK government to remove the human right to protest, this performance celebrates rebellion and explores violence as a legitimate tool to fight an oppressive system. Combining testimonies by Emily Davison with autobiographical confession, Wilding merges archival footage with original video projection mapped onto an array of cardboard placards, as the performers present personal protests, Euro-Punk and a pantomime horse.
