Audrey Rose

Audrey Rose does not love Piña Coladas or getting caught in the rain - unless it's warm outside and there's dry clothes and a shower somewhere in the future, in which case, that's fun!

 

She is in to yoga, cuddly cats, and punk culture. She likes to talk about Bakhtinian heteroglossia and carnivalesque in punk narratives and write poems and theater plays. She was born on the anniversary of the Paris Commune of 1871 and believes she may or may not be John Lennon reincarnated.

 

Her influences include Derrick Jensen, Kathy Acker, Dr. Seuss, Alan Martin, Neil Gaiman, Toni Morrison, Brecht, Ovid, Sarah Kane and her alter ego and cathartic release: The Wichts. She currently "resides" in Paris.

About the performance:

7X7, a performance with 7 actors, duration 60 minutes.

The piece is a comment on Sweden's obsession with hygiene, eugenics and "clean design". 7 actors, dressed as animals referring to the seven deadly sins, cleaned a room for 60 minutes. Before entering the room, the audience could watch a film about the consequences of fascism and hygiene.

Zafire wants to credit the actors and and collaborators for amazing work: Mike, Ilaa, Louis, Joshua, Timothy, Kiki, Björn, Audrey and Dan.
