“In Tough Times, Everyone Has To Take Their Share of the Pain” — Theresa May
THIS IS OUR AMBITIOUS VISION as we are ENGAGED IN A STRUGGLE THAT IS FOUGHT ON MANY FRONTS AND IN MANY FORMS we are TAKING CONTROL OF OUR OWN AFFAIRS and it is VITAL WE MAINTAIN OUR DISCIPLINE keeping ourselves AS FRICTIONLESS AS POSSIBLE whilst creating THE MOST EFFECTIVE HARD AND SOFT POWER as we know IT IS NOT THE MEANS THAT MATTER BUT THE ENDS.
Femme Feral presents THERESAMAYSMACKDOWN, a queer, feminist, anti-fascist, noise-driven ferocious four-hour fight to the death [of the alt-right]. Brandishing baby oil and pure fucking fiery rage, Femme Feral Fighters build a cacophony of body slamming sound in a ritual of violence, powerful enough to summon the total annihilation of Theresa May and the Conservative Party.
// 4 HOURS // 4 FIGHTERS // LIQUIDS // NOISE // FURY // PASSION // DESTRUCTION //
Femme Feral is a ferocious fighting wrestling noise band. It is an ever-shifting inclusive collective of artists founded by Anna Smith and Phoebe Patey-Ferguson over a shared enthusiasm of the 1970s Aggressive Women lesbian porn series, powerful walls of noise, the power of the female body, intimacy and risk. We are joined together in the collective by our desperate desire to explore immediate aggression, get physical, down and dirty and unleash really loud fucking noise in response to the systematic violence of our current political reality. Working with completely amateur fighting technique and totally improvised noise, we want to give form to the violence we have internalised, to free it from our tense shoulders, to put it in the world and show it to the people.
