A show about dominance and submission.
The ways we give in, and the ways we take control. Physically, psychologically, sexually, socially. Through the body, through language, and through structures of power.
Ways To Submit invites you in to a fantasy, a game, a dialogue, a performance, a fight: a series of duets in which power is at work.
Ways To Submit tries to understand the body – and the performance space – as a site of resistance and a site of succumbing. It explores what it means to play at dominance and submission. And who has the privilege to ‘play’?
The first full-length public outings of Ways To Submit was be as part of The Yard’s NOW19 Festival, 5th-9th February 2019.
Commissioned by The Yard Theatre, and supported by Cambridge Junction and The Marlborough Theatre. Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
