AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A new performance work about human behaviour, gender, power, and violence. This Kind of Ruckus explores the making and wrecking of relationships, patterns of control, and cycles of abuse.

'Version 1.0 turn their trademark subversive style of theatre-making and sharp satirical wit to investigating the underside of domestic-bliss. Relationship counselling, dysfunctional gendered roles and cute cuddly toys offered as inadequate apologies are blended with commentary on the recent high profile sexual assault scandals involving rugby league players to create a confronting, unsettling and deeply compelling performance.'
