Project Xan

jedda Productions | 8 – 19 November

she was behaving like a slut…

Set in a rink-side courtroom, and oscillating between now and 1981, Project Xan examines the events of one dark night that changed a young girl’s life forever.

With Xan Fraser’s story at its heart, this riveting work interrogates the perilous injustices behind rape culture and victim blaming.

Featuring Xan herself on stage, Project Xan is a powerful performance documentary: a potent mosaic of live action, courtroom transcript, news articles, vox-pop and personal testimony, all set to a pulsating score.
