REVOLT. SHE SAID. REVOLT AGAIN. morphs language and explodes boundaries to explore the myriad ways women are styled, shaped, and confined to fit society’s expectations, asking us: What happens when we rebel? Combining sharp humor and raw emotion in vignettes that swing wildly between the real, the surreal and the self-aware, REVOLT is as multifaceted and untamable as the subject matter it celebrates. Stylishly tackling workplace power dynamics, sexual politics, and societal expectations, REVOLT sinks in, takes hold, and is impossible to forget.
"Playful, wild, and jagged..."
- New York Times
"A cluster-bomb of subversion."
- The Telegraph
"A puckish, yet deadly serious meditation on how language molds our experience of sex and gender, a scalding cascade of interconnected vignettes exploring words and their limits."
