SCUM
SCUM is fantastical burlesque/alien/cabaret that uses found text, dance, music and devised material in various mediums to look at two female figures: Valerie Solanas and Carolyn Sapp. Valerie shot Andy Warhol and wrote the SCUM Manifesto, which calls for the extermination of all men. Carolyn was Miss America in 1992. Valerie was a victim of sexual abuse at the hands of her father; Carolyn was a victim of domestic abuse at the hands of her fiancé. They have both written rambling pieces of text that give their particular ideas on how to be a woman, but there's something broken inside all that big language. Neither Valerie nor Carolyn can really figure out how to survive as a woman in the world because it is an impossible task. Whether you follow the rules of conventional femininity, like Carolyn, or reject them and construct your own radical, violent vision of how gender should function, like Valerie, the world will still tear you apart.
