This is our book of spells.

We put words in here, so that a change comes out.

In here, you will find spells that protest

That rebel That reclaim

That reconjure

That seep under your skin and haunt.

In here, you will hear stories you’ve probably heard before. But we hope that we never have to tell again.

Now, as we begin, we ask you to be open

To fall under our spells

And be the change that emerges.

Born from teenage girls’ experiences of gendered school uniform policies, Ankles is a live Book of Spells to cast away victim-blaming culture. Through a whirlwind of poetry, movement, and a haunting musical score, we ask, when will we stop teaching kids that it’s girls’ responsibility to keep themselves safe from sexual violence?

From the company that brought you the critically acclaimed ‘Raising Shame‘.

BRASH is a bold, educational theatre company that strives to make sex education relevant, empowering, and unafraid.
