8 – 19 May 2019

Love latex and hate the patriarchy? Pour a drink, ditch the leash, and come revel in this twisted rehashing of the vintage sexism that drives how we live and love and fight and f*ck.

Absurdist lip-synch meets high-camp performance art in this pop-fuelled critique of sexual politics in the age of implied consent. Nothing is sacred as psycho-siren Leah Shelton trawls through a Pandora’s box of ancient myths, porn, pop-culture, instructional records and revenge movie heroines.

Welcome to the doghouse. Beware. This Bitch bites.

“An all-guns blazing, brute force demolition of sexual politics.”
★★★★★ GUTTER CULTURE

"Performance art at its best. Every moment is executed with the intention of provoking emotion in the audience - from bemusement to anger to a righteous rage that stays with you as leave. ”
★★★★★ OUT IN PERTH

“They come along once in a blue moon. Shows that stop you dead in your tracks. Simply magnificent… don’t think I’ve ever seen an audience so totally gobsmacked.”
★★★★★ SEESAW MAGAZINE

"Provocative and thought inducing… absolute perfection."
★★★★★ FOURTH WALL MEDIA
