Nona Demey Gallagher and Lieselot Siddiki were the first and only in Europe to receive permission from the heirs of Valerie Solanas to stage her satirical comedy Up Your Ass (1965).

Although Solanas wrote Up Your Ass in 1965, the piece was stolen by Andy Warhol for years and was only rediscovered in 1999, after her death. The abhorrent anger that splashes from the play, the urge not only to transform the patriarchy, but to destroy it, clearly finds its seed in Solanas's troubled life and relationship with Andy Warhol. Solanas is best known today as the American radical feminist writer who was plagued by mental problems and who shot Andy Warhol in 1986 in an alleged act of revenge. Robbed of her artwork, she was committed to a psychiatric institution and died some time later without recognition for her work. In both Up Your Ass and her more famous book SCUM Manifesto ( Society for Cutting Up Men ) she unfolds her revolutionary feminist protest against capitalist patriarchy. Both performances are also about sex as an age-old political weapon.

A dazzling profound piece, in a guise of punk, pop art and baroque, with a young top cast to say the least!
