Torch, a collaboration with Flipping the Bird and Phoebe Eclair-Powell, is a new piece of gig-theatre set in a nightclub toilet, performed by Jess Mabel Jones. Woven from the stories of these three women, influenced by questionnaire responses and splintered with the anthem-worthy songs of Sía to Patti Smith, Torch is a Vagina Monologues for the messy, confused, resilient Millennials.
