We are the wild ones…
political child is pink suits debut album and their first full-length performance work. The live show, containing all of the music from the upcoming album, is a gender fuck scream of punk rage. An anti capitalist protest. A feminist rebellion. A Queer resistance of gender binaries. It is a late onset teen angst scream of rage against the current political system.
Post 2016. Post Brexit, Post Trump. POST TRUTH FUCK PROOF. The album/performance addresses themes of rebellion, anti government protest, sexism and female censorship, social media, mental health and survival in a neoliberal society. It aims to fight back against intolerance and the global rise of right wing politics by using aggressive political rock to bring people together in rage and frustration. Together we make noise as resistance, we shout to come together in solidarity and direct our anger towards creating radical change. Longing for a time that music could change the world. Struggling to grow up and fuelled by anger, regret and naivety. With just drums and a guitar, pink suits try to re live the fantasies of their youth buy screaming to the void.
The live show is a performance experiment that blurs the line between a live music gig and a dance theatre show.
The performance received support for initial research in Autumn 2017 from:
Chisenhale Dance Space, Margate Arts Club, Cliffs Cafe Margate, Tom Thumb Theatre.
Development was supported by funding from Arts Council England and:
