Shakespeare’s Rape of Lucrece
performed by Elena Pellone

St. Paul's Church
Covent Garden, October 2023

“It is in bringing out the poem's potential to destabilize culturally re-affirmative accounts of sexual violence and to fracture the gendered construction of identity that such violence enforces. By virtue of Pellone's embodied performance, Lucrece climbs the stage to take on and play off all the cultural ascriptions directed at her as a violated woman. She takes back full possession of her story and of herself.”
