A dancer, an actress, a naked stage. Emilie Charriot adapts Virginie Despentes without artifice nor vehemence. More than a feminist manifesto, King Kong Théorie is the story of an emancipation, the affirmation of a freedom. The story of a person who intends on standing strong, whatever may happen. Three years after its premiere at the Arsenic, Emilie Charriot reprises her adaptation of Virginie Despentes’ literary sucker punch. With a raw yet masterful use of language, the author recounts her rape and her experience as a sex worker. Simple but never simplistic, the staging underlines the power of the text, its paradoxes and its complexities, in order to better highlight its universal quality. Behind the militant language, the words of the author – but especially those of the person – shine through.
