Sex & Death: Whalebone & Silent Meat



Whalebone is about bodies: who takes up space, how much, and why? 


Three puppeteers stand awkwardly in corsets. A woman decides to take control of her body – deleting it, piece by piece.


Reimagining Lolita's lesser-known sister, Nabokov's Laura, Whalebone collides puppetry and physical theatre in a world where bodies are painted, tucked, tightened and taught, where shadows are embarrassing and silhouettes become stencils.


Irreverent feminist theatre, narrated by a talking vagina.

Hatch It Theatre

Date: 31st October 2017, 7.30pm

Tickets: £12 (£10)



A gay couple meet in what feels like a destined encounter, only for their ideas of faith to be put to the test. An American PR executive searches for the answers to the death of a girl she's never met. An elderly woman tries to reconnect with her childhood friend before euthanising herself with Mexican pet barbiturates. And, in Tel Aviv, a peppy Canadian vlogger moves in with her Israeli holiday fling, only for him to be called up to fight in Gaza.


What does it feel like to discover your partner died via a google search? Why do people become obsessed with unsolved deaths on Reddit? What happens when moving in with your boyfriend means being accused of war crimes on Facebook? Set across three continents, Silent Meat is an exploration of what it feels like to love, lose and feel alone in the 21st century.
