A performative encyclopedia of female outbursts that uses rage as an empowerment strategy:
In our society, women are still expected to remain friendly and keep their anger to themselves. But in mythology, history, pop culture and everyday life there are countless female role models who were able to express their anger in an empowering way. Sööt/Zeyringer take these women into the spotlight: In minimalist scenarios they raise their voices and give free rein to profitable and destructive forms of anger and indignation. With dry humour, a rage archive is created that makes visible the manifold ways of being angry.
