The Wrested

The Wrested (2019) is a fiction presented as dialogue, wherein competing voices grapple with who gets to tell the story.

When a group of weary individuals travel to an as-yet uncharted island seeking convalescence, disagreement breaks out over conflicting accounts of events. Navigating hierarchies of knowledge and the medical-industrial complex, The Wrested explores how some marginalised bodies come to perpetuate the very structures that oppress them.

An adaptation of The Wrested was performed in March 2020 at Ugly Duck, London, with Valentina Bin, Flint, Hasti, Kaushikee Gupta, Khaver Idrees, Francesca Kos, Annina Lehmann, Dasha Loyko, Simina Neagu, Louise Riou-Djukic, and Olivia Walton, with a sung performance by Riley Reign.
