by Sally Pomme Clayton and The Swamp Girls. Presented with Cambridge Storytellers.

The Frog Princess Punked is funny, feminist, dark, and definitely for adults only!

Pioneering storyteller Sally Pomme Clayton and girl punk band, The Swamp Girls, create a hybrid hullabaloo of spoken word, distorted guitars, scorching drums, riotous songs, set in a shifting collage of surreal projections v-jayed live! The Frog Princess Punked rocks storytelling!

What happens when Ivan marries a frog? Big sounds, a wicked racket! Urban meets forest. Patriarchy meets feminism. Baba Yaga meets Koschey the Deathless! This crazed punk fairytale warns of the danger of annexing the wild and the wisdom of liberating the female.

This collaboration brings together: Sally Pomme Clayton who has spearheaded storytelling for adult audiences across the UK; Dawn Rose outstanding female drummer who performed with Altered Images and Right Said Fred; Georgia Kalogeropoulou musician and composer re-making punk anew. They are joined by honorary Swamp Girl Fotios Begklis an innovative digital artist creating surreal collages of films.
