DE STROYED
 

Simone de Beauvoir was a ground breaking French feminist who caused seismic shifts in attitude and inspired a whole generation of women to strive for personal freedom and fulfillment. DE STROYED celebrates De Beauvoir’s singular brilliance and explodes the tensions and pressure points created by leading a daring and unconventional life.

Using only De Beauvoir’s words it scrutinizes with searing intelligence, humour and pathos what it means to love, the nature of romance, and our common fate. It opens the window on a view of where Feminism began and questions by implication how far have we really come?

Created by Jillian Murray (Green room award winner L’amante anglaise) and acclaimed director Suzanne Chaundy in collaboration with Zoe Scoglio, video artist and composer Christopher de Groot.
