By Betty Grumble
21 - 26 January 2019
A womanifesto, call to arms and long, hard kiss from surreal showgurl, obscene beauty queen and totem critter, Betty Grumble.
Witness her ecosexually charged protest party of dancing dissent, disco and deep push back-ery, where pleasure is a radical act and the body a bloody love letter. Love and Anger is a “reclamation of the feminine spirit in all its juices, jiggles and joy” (Edfest Mag).

“Exhibitionist, provocateur, singer, dancer, contortionist, Betty Grumble offers a literally penetrating evening in the theatre. Love it or be angered by it, Love and Anger is risky, risque and strangely irresistible.” Richard Cotter, Sydney Arts Guide
“Grumble insists that our attention is placed on the here and now, and in a theatre space where all our corporeality is congregated, present and irrefutable, she does marvellous things to her body, with her body, inside and onto her body, so that we may reach an image of ourselves, beyond taboo and outrage, that represents a renewed purity…The best thing about Love And Anger, is Grumble herself. ” Suzy Wrong, Suzy Goes See
“Roaringly funny and filled with flesh, Love and Anger is an empowering protest piece promoting the power of women whilst being a celebration of the female form. Funny and inventive and at times eye opening this is an entertaining night for anyone with an open mind…” Jade Kops, Broadway World
