Enemies of Grooviness – Eat Shit

Betty Grumble
26–31 October
Griffin Theatre
Sydney, NSW

Transformative and WILD. See Grumble” – Peaches

A ritual theatre work entrenched in pleasure activism, conducted by your local hysterical heretic and person of interest, Betty Grumble.

This is the show she performs instead of an assassination, where laughter is sharpened to a blade and the body, a feeling tonic.

Grumble continues her quest for world-saving and love-making via our ancestors of rock ‘n’ roll, protest and poetry.

Hope Energy meets Rage Energy in this all-singing, all-howling cabaret du Sex Clown.

Thank you, body!
