IN BURNING - IN BASHING BACK - IN BLOOMING - A SPOKEN WORD AND PERFORMANCE ART-MUSICAL BY ALEXANDER ALVINA CHAMBERLAND
”Those who have suffered understand suffering and thereby extend their hand, the storm which brings harm also makes the grass grow fertile” – Patti Smith
”Sometimes all reflective human beings struggle with feelings of emptiness and everything being meaningless. Does the realization of deep oppression and all the darkness in the world require suicide? No, it requires revolt!” – Quote from the play
A personal account on processing being raped in a society that says it will ruin your life and regaining – and gaining new – strength. Through yourself, through support, through solidarity, through SCREAMING, through activism. Riot Grrrl meets queerfemme-inist performance art meets dark musical. Featuring music by Bikini Kill, PJ Harvey, Le Tigre, Hole, Christina Aguilera, TLC, Nina Simone, Diamanda Galas, L7, Amy Winehouse and CocoRosie. The production is in English. Co-director Angie Negin Rad. Photo: Idios. Length: 70 minutes
* trigger warning since the play features the reenactment of a sexual assault
The following is a clip from a scene in the production in its raw, unfinished beginning stages "This little limp wrist turns into a fucking fist":

PS Vilar rösten gärnet, för jag ska klara av detta. Ska sjunga "You Know I'm No Good" och "Tears dry on their own" och min röst har bara räckt till för basregistret ända sedan jag flög från USA. Flygresor och jetlag och ojämn sömn tär på rösten som fan. Jag vill waila - basregistret blir enformigt. ON THURSDAY THIS GONNA BE ME (eller om jag iaf kommer i närheten av det här är jag mer än nöjd!):
