Are There Female Gorillas?

Are There Female Gorillas?

Meet Girl and Gorilla. They have been together for as long as they can remember. Ever since they were born into a world of patriachal gaze. Girl is shaved. Gorilla is hairy. This is a problem. One which they can't solve easily.

Are There Female Gorillas? is a response to the #metoo campaign and the surge of mainstream feminism. This is a two-women show insipired by real-life female experiences, particularly our insecurities surrounding body hair, breaking out of the mould of being a "lady" and the feeling of being pulled between societal expectation and our own animalistic, natural selves.

Created by experimental artist Grace SDS and writer/actor Sophie Ablett, this is a show that blends spoken word, childhood games, naturalist new writing and facts about gorillas.

Are There Female Gorillas? premiered at Black Box Festival at The Etcetera Theatre.

Theatre Company Reviews:

2 years old, the first time I can blurry remember being a “pretty little girl” in my pretty little dress, even with my gorilla.’
