In Guilty of Love, Marie Schraepen, Sophia Bauer and Mats Vandroogenbroeck investigate the overload of sexual violence in our common cultural imagination.

The motif of the dead, raped women is especially prevalent: as a desire, as a monster, as a sacrifice. In constantly changing roles, the actors attempt to get a grip on the persistent nature of this image. Popular imaginations cross over each other. A testimony clashes with soap dialogue and YouTube re- enacting videos in the search for an adequate language that transcends the cliches of this theme.

This play is performed in English without surtitles.
