Sister Shrill invite you to listen to a conversation with only one rule, never speak with an empty mouth.
Sister Shrill was formed in January 2017, with their debut performance "Oh, sorry was I being shrill?" performed as part of the BxNU MFA | Interim exhibition, "Slowing into Form" at Vane gallery, Newcastle upon Tyne. Ciara Lenihan (b.1991, Cork) and Melissa MacPherson (b.1992, Durham) have shared interests in women's rights, identity politics and popular culture which has enabled them to kick-start a powerful artist duo. They riff off one another, often switching dominant and submissive roles, and interjecting humour, wordplay and improvised movement.
Sister Shrill are also showing 'Let it brush across my face' (2017) as part of the group exhibition, Alt Facts, at 36 Lime Street (9 June - 18 June 2017).
This performance is part of the BxNU Graduate exhibition, I Remember Most What Never Happened, at BALTIC 39 (31 May - 18 June 2017).
