Warriors R Ousss!

Written & performed by Racheal Oak Butler and Kamarra Bell-Wykes with Design and live composition by Andrew Niven. Set in a dojo, this is an energetic physical theatre piece accompanied by a live musician. The audience will learn practical self-defence and self-empowerment techniques and giant insight into predator/prey power dynamics. Ceremonial dance cycles and stylised fight sequences explore historical, personal and collective cycles of violence. In May 2021, Racheal Oak Butler and Kamarra Bell-Wykes changed direction during a Celsius creative development of another work, and the outcome was the beginning of Warriors R Ousss! Using text and physical devising techniques Racheal, Kamarra and Andrew will collaboratively develop the script and movement cycles to create a final draft ready for rehearsal and presentation at Deadly Fringe, Melbourne in 2021.
