socially [un]acceptable is an honest, brave and thought provoking performance which details one woman’s personal experience of sexual assault through a series of autobiographical vignettes. With resounding ferocity and unwavering composure, socially [un]acceptable will challenge and inspire you as it takes you on a voyage through the musings of a woman fighting social pressure, discovering self-worth and understanding what it means to have ownership of your own body.

Written and performed by Laura Desmond.

Recorded on Kaurna land.
