Cock and Bull
By Nic Green, with Laura Bradshaw and Rosana Cade
Thu 11 – Sun 14 August, 8pm
Originally conceived for the eve of the 2015 general election, Cock and Bull sees three females convene to perform their own, alternative, party conference. Exploring power, voice, agency and sustainability they use the most heard phrases from governmental rhetoric to dismantle and redress dominant paradigms of power and Politics.
Cock and Bull is a transforming choreography of words and a passionate speech of the body, underpinned with the real-time energy of political dissatisfaction and tory tongue-speak.
