BETTY GRUMBLE - ENEMIES OF GROOVINESS

18+

"Funny, filthy, deeply felt, unapologetic, full-frontal... She reclaims pleasure and joy as a pathway to catharsis, and parallels the personal with the political." - TIme Out

"Transformative and WILD. See Grumble" - Peaches

Hello Bodies... After a decade of playing within her spiritual access point and avatar, Betty Grumble - performance artist Emma Maye Gibson re-emerges, bringing her latest offering Enemies of Grooviness Eat Sh** back to the stage as a mantric wish.

This show is a self reflective, regenerative dive into the compost bin of making and moving through the trouble; of defying the ever-present cultures of violence and ecocide. Bowing to the powers of Grief and Love Energy, Rage Energy, Hope Energy & Fk Energy, Gibson invites you to sit with and honour the legacy of makers mentors, friends, lovers and 'enemies' that have formed an ecosystem of aliveness within the perils of eco-grief and structures that certainly no longer serves us.

Across the season Gibson returns Gurmble from whence she came, performing and unfurling of the eco-feminist carapace that gave her a way to heal, feel and defy the damn enemies of grooviness that keep, her, them, you, all of us down.

"Grumble does not belong to me, she belongs to the universe. Like the fractal landscape of a flower, like a drag face on the bum of a caterpillar. She has held me, and at this threshold of maturation, I let her become and unbecome me. Thank You Body!"

Enemies of Grooviness Eat Sh** is poetry, tribute, a rock n roll performance art collision, love scene and revenge fantasy. An unshaming dance and chance to allow ourselves to be seen. You are invited into a sensual, surreal and sublime experience of an all singing, dancing, howling and love cabaret du Sex Clown. Let's have fun. 

Energetic Considerations: Strobe, Incense burning, Loud music, Full Frontal Nudity, Death, Grief, Sex Scenes, Love energy, Rage energy, Discussion of Violence and sexual violence, Hope energy and more full frontal de-clothed body! 


We acknowledge the power to be able to speak truth to power and invite you to take care of yourself and your stories within this work.
