Destroy She Said is inspired by Caryl Churchill's play The Skriker (1994) which tells the story of an ancient and damaged fairy — named the Skriker — who continually shape-shifts into a plethora of objects and people while warning them of the approaching environmental apocalypse.
Destroy She Said remains a cautionary story which uses fairytale to project hard truths. In our version, Skrikers multiply into a triadic-force that rises from the underworld into the Gland of Suburbia. They have come to answer the call: Who said destroy? Who is she?
What is being destroyed?: the self? the family? the society? the system? the environment?
Something is not right in the Gland of Suburbia…

*Destroy She Said is a long-term devising project that began in 2013 as part of an artistic residency at Mile Zero Dance in Edmonton, AB, and then morphed into a 30-minute performance at the Young Lung's Dance Exchange Production Series in 2015. Thanks to the support of the Winnipeg Arts Council, Manitoba Arts Council and the University of Lethbridge Research Fund, the work continues to develop and will premiere a full-length production, June 14-16 at 8pm.
