Eight women, four conversations and a murder that shakes up the feminist theatre and film scene. Some Stupid Bitch Killed Ana Peaceful, written and produced by Anton Bonnici is a new erotic comedy with a feminist twist. The play draws inspiration from the life of Valerie Solanas, a radical feminist thinker and writer of the 1960s who called for the elimination of the male sex in her outrageously scathing SCUM Manifesto and who is perhaps most well-known for almost fatally shooting Andy Warhol on June 3, 1968. Five decades later, Some Stupid Bitch Killed Ana Peaceful adopts the defiant spirit of Solanas to a contemporary world where women continue to be told how and what to say, think or do and where acts of defiance and rebellion continue to be shunned.
Some Stupid Bitch Killed Ana Peaceful is also the first full-length project of Paris-based international production lab Of Potters’ Demons. Under the artistic co-direction of Anton Bonnici and Louise Denyer, Of Potters’ Demons seeks to create interdisciplinary dialogues by creating of bold, experimental and political works of writing, visual arts and performance. The play is co-directed by Louise Denyer, Christine Ryndak and Patti Martins and features an all-female ensemble of Emma Finet, Jennifer Karen, Penelope Reider, Louise Denyer and Pattie Martins and an original soundtrack composed and recorded by YEWS.
The play ‘Some Stupid Bitch Killed Ana Peaceful’ will be performed at 8:30 pm, June 17, 2017 at the theatre gallery and creative space Le Pavé dÓrsay, 48 rue de Lille, 75007 Paris.
