The Biting School – a meeting ground for dance theatre and performance art.

The inspiration for this work is the biblical story of Cain and Abel. This show explores the idea of jealousy and sibling rivalry which leads to fratricidal violence, fueled by the patriarchal society we inhabit. Performed in two parts, the first half of the show is highly physical, aggressive in rhythm and stereotypically masculine, while the second half of the show is a reaction to the absence of women from the biblical story. Inspired by Jean Genet’s The Maids, the work is a study of Cain and Abel as two sisters.
