The Gentle Art of Punishment

THE GENTLE ART OF PUNISHMENT

 
 

Synopsis

A dystopian dark-comedy that unravels trauma through sound, text and movement. Three women engage with their girlhoods, idols and ideals in a dream-like and nostalgic narrative. The Gentle Art of Punishment is for anyone who has ever had a crush on their therapist - or thinks that Drew Barrymore is under-appreciated in her dramatic roles.
