Cockroach

Date: 14 Aug 2018

When C wakes from a nightmare, she finds herself transformed into a monstrous vermin.

For too long, she’s been told there’s something wrong with her. For so long, she’s yearned to behave badly. Tonight’s her night of reckoning!

Join C on a bloodcurdling bar crawl as this avenging exoskeletal anti-heroine rises from the ashes of abuse to become the true definition of a pest.

Part free verse poem, part dance theatre, part grunge cabaret, this urban-noir adventure written and directed by Melita Rowston subverts the patterns of rape in Ovid’s Metamorphoses to explore the silencing that follows abuse and the transformations that occur recovering from it.
