A slimy, violent, seducing, and vulnerable rebellion is underway: If Britney can be freed, maybe we can too?
The music performance WORK BITCH is a war declaration against everything keeping us down: the banks’ firm control of our economy, never ending SoMe notifications, data monitoring, gender norms, hidden racism, jealousy, anxiety, restlessness, vanity, and our eternal longing for freedom.
Since a public breakdown 10 years ago Britney Spears has been under guardianship. She cannot spend money, make appointments, or leave her house without permission. This has resulted in several lawsuits, a worldwide documentary, and dedicated fans from around the world, joining forces in the #FreeBritney movement. This is the inspiration for WORK BITCH in telling a story about submission, rebellion, and release. About fragility and violence. It is a flimsy hope for freedom. How does one riot against the live, one is created from? How does one riot against oneself?
The performance is created by director Niels Erling and choreographer Gunilla Lind who team up with author Ida Marie Hede, composer Rasmus Juncker, set designer Lise Marie Birch and actors Sicilia Gadborg, Nanna Cecilie Bang, Hamun Maghsodlo and Joachim Kubel.
