CUCK: a live documentary

Misogynists, suicide, and octopuses

SOLO PERFORMANCE BY ST. JOHN MCKAY

Sunday, May 20th, 2018

Triskelion Arts Theater, Brooklyn, NY

In these ebullient times comes Cuck, a solo performance exploring anti-women’s movements and the backlash against feminism.

To go deep, I take on the personas of five of the world’s biggest ‘pick-up artists’ — men who charge other men thousands of dollars to learn how to seduce women — and combine their words with a well of projected media clips and audience interaction.

To round out this live documentary there’s suffragette Emily Davison’s martyrdom, Hillary’s unexpected fall, a personal confession of a near-suicide … and lots of octopuses.

An intimate night of just you, the pickup artists, and me too.

[TRIGGER WARNING: Although in the context of appropriation and satire, there are words of sexual violence, suicide, and misogyny.]
