The Hope Theatre, 15 – 18 August
With so much happening at Camden Fringe in August, it’s proving difficult to actually pick which shows to see. Luckily, we are about to make the choice much easier for one of you. Because our latest competition is for a pair of tickets for any performance of The Not-God Complex’s What Makes A Body Terrifying?
What Makes A Body Terrifying?
Bodies of water. Bodies in space. Bodies together. Bodies alone.
Who taught you to be scared of the sea? What stories did you hear? What powers of persuasion did they use?
What Makes A Body Terrifying is a queer exploration of two strikingly similar folk tales: the Slavic Rusalke and the Celtic Selkies. These two folk tales centre around mythical sea-people – said to shed their skins and become dangerous, beautiful human-forms, who seduce sailors and lure them to their deaths. This piece explores how they use narrative and rhetorical devices to create fear, and how these parallel with the ways fear is generated against queer bodies.
What Makes a Body Terrifying? is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
About Not-God Complex

Hosting a collective of performers and a freelancer’s network called the NGC Hub, the company centres their work around an aim for inclusive practice.
