Sweden: The SCUM Manifesto - Now As A School Play

Article here. Excerpt:

'SCUM Manifesto by Valerie Solanas is a violent attack on masculinity. The men are accused of having made the world a shit place. Solana line up all the men are obliged to: war, violence, money system, imagination, ugly buildings and more. She puts forward the thesis that men are biologically inferior to men and that it is the foundation for all problems.

We are now setting up the show as a monologue. We think the text is funny, sharp, provocative, imaginative and liberating. It is a reaction to centuries of oppression of women. There is no equivalent. She draws his conclusions so far that men no longer have any raison d'etre.

This is of course provocative. And that is exactly what is meant. We want to create discussion. Not telling the truth. The point of our conception is that the audience is forced to own reflective.

Show's second part therefore consists of a discussion of what we have seen. What values ​​are presented in the show? What values ​​do we learn from our upbringing? Are there differences between men and women? Why is that in this case about? Are there things girls and guys are not allowed to do because of their gender? Do we want to change the world? Why? How? mmmm'
