Angry Snatch present: A Reclamation Job in 15 Rounds

Created and performed by Frankie Walker in collaboration with Meg Fenwick and Cai Tomos.

“As the dawn slow-dawns, it dawns on me, the only way out of this house is to dismantle the whole block. Brick by brick, painstaking, consuming labour from roof to foundation, learning to salvage bolts and bits and domestic things.”

A provocative and captivating story of reclamation and recovery from intimate partner abuse, based on lived experience.

Physical-theatre, spoken word and dance, performed in a boxing ring, interrogating the traumatic effects of controlling and coercive behaviour as we move through one woman’s healing journey. What is the legacy of abuse and who do we become as a result of it?

CONTENT WARNING: Although this piece of work tackles coercive control and domestic abuse you will not see any depictions of violence.
