SHOCK AND AWE: Machinations on the female grotesque




One of the co artistic directors of avant garde feminist theatre company: THE RABBLE discusses the aesthetics, politics and difficulties around representing the female body on stage. Using her past productions: Story of O - an investigation of female sexual and religious sublimation, Frankenstein - a rebellion against the so called natural condition of motherhood and her upcoming production of Joan (a project around the iconography of Joan of Arc) looking at how the female form relates to national identity.


Emma discusses everything from the politics of nudity on stage, how to make a great sex scene, to the feminist translation of the male gaze. Emma Valente is a multi-discipline theatre artist and the co-artistic director and founder of THE RABBLE. This session is co-presented by Loud Mouth Theatre Company.


Emma will be in conversation with Loud Mouth’s Maeve Mhairi Macgregor.
