Werewolf Erotica She Wrote (Mathilda Gregory / Free Festival)

By | Published on Saturday 16 August 2014

Mathilde Madden is the successful, self-deprecating author of werewolf erotica. Her show chronicles her writing career, explaining how she came to write what she does. It seems, for her at least, that writing in this genre brings with it a string of bizarre experiences from defining the limits of bestiality to dealing with publishers, Amazon reviewers and convicts. The story takes the most unpredictable twists and turns – all absolutely real, she tells us – and is delivered with warmth, candour and simplicity. Without ever spelling it out, Madden’s show insists that even supposedly ‘low’ art werewolf erotica, or a show about it can both entertain and carry important messages about the perception of (and access to) art.

Laughing Horse @ The Counting House, until 24 Aug.
