THE BABES ARE READY TO GET SERIOUS. VERY SERIOUS. LED BY THE MOST SERIOUS DIRECTOR THEY COULD FIND, BRIONY O'CALLAGHAN (CREATED A MONSTER) TO WADE THROUGH THE CALAMITY AND JOY OF MOTHERHOOD AND PULL OUT THE DARKEST AND MOST SECRETIVE PARTS. PREPARE TO WATCH AS THE DOLLS LAY THEIR BLOODIED TRUTHS BARE. IT’S A CONSPIRACY, A MYTH, A FACTORY. IT’S MINDNUMBINGLY DULL AND BORN OF HORROR. SHARED BY ALL BIRTHING CREATURES; IT’S A FUCKING ABATTOIR.
In April 2022 I spent three weeks directing and co-devising ABATTOIR with Edinburgh-based company SALTYDOLLS led by Estlin Love and Fiona Oliver-Larkin. The piece was made with the support of Creative Scotland, Surge Glasgow, Assembly Roxy and Dancebase.
