COCK, COCK.. WHO'S THERE?

SAMIRA ELAGOZ


Part of Going Global

Our building is now temporarily closed to the public and performances in the Going Global season are no longer going ahead. 

We will open our doors again as soon as it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we're finding ways to support the incredible artists and communities that work with us. We're confident that by working together, we'll come out of this  stronger and more connected than ever.

An unflinching look at the power of femininity and the female gaze.
 

A trip across three continents, from online platforms like Tinder and Chatroulette to close encounters, Samira takes us on her journey to reclaim power after being raped. Confrontational, funny yet touching, Samira presents an unflinching look at the power of femininity and the female gaze in a world in which the virtual and the real are inextricably intertwined.
 

Winner of a Total Theatre Award 2018, Cock, Cock.. Who’s There? Is an international hit, having toured to Amsterdam, Tel Aviv, Paris, Dublin, Rome, Vienna, Mexico City, Reykjavik, Brussels, Warsaw and more, to wide critical acclaim.


Running Time: 65 mins
Age Guidance: 18+


Performed by Samira Elagoz, with Tashi Iwaoka and Yuriri Naka


‘Raises questions about a woman’s right to present herself to the world without being judged. By friends. By the police. By us, the audience’
Lyn Gardner, The Stage 

★★★★★ 'Cock, Cock becomes a statement of fierce defiance without ever raising its voice to a shout' The List

★★★★ 'There’s an ultimate sense that consensual intimacy is still a beautiful thing' The Scotsman 

★★★★ 'This is a hard-hitting, graphic and difficult piece of theatre' The Young Perspective

'Quite possibly the best thing on at the festival this year… a piece of art that’s far more nuanced, intelligent and adult in its consideration of sexuality and femininity than the vast majority made on the subject' Exeunt Magazine 

★★★★★ 'Intimate and raw while simultaneously being clinical and distanced'  730review
