Crazed Russian fairytale meets punk rock.
Ivan is forced to marry a frog.
Baba Yaga meets Koschey the Deathless.
And the patriarchy is challenged…

Pioneering storyteller Sally Pomme Clayton and an all-girl band weld the noise of punk with a surreal narrative about the perils of annexing the wild, and the wisdom of letting the women loose. Together they create a cacophony of spoken word, song and distortion, amidst a scratch collage of images. It’s gonna be angry. It’s gonna be loud!
