Performed by Indra Wilson
Subtitles in English are available for this work
Till I Die is exploring gender stereotypes of the slasher genre. In the performance, Indra asks what our fascination is with killers, why we enjoy watching them and what it means to be a victim.
Expect fake blood, that famous phone call scene and an outspoken feminist. “I see dead people”….. But mainly dead women. In films, books, music videos, The Sun headlines, Netflix documentaries… We are bloodthirsty for dead women. There is only one thing we love more than dead women… their male killers.
Indra created this performance after feeling she was staring in her own horror film. Now, with the safety of an audience, she wants to explore that moment for your thrill-hungry entertainment. She invites you to grab your popcorn and prepare to be spooked.
This performance explores themes of violence against women which audiences may find distressing. If you think you are in danger or are worried about someone who could be: Call the Victim’s Information Service for free on 0808 168 9293 or Text the word ‘SHOUT’ to 85258.
