ACTION MOVIE is WIVES’ attempt at a live, anti-oppressive action movie.

In ACTION MOVIE, WIVES examines the mass appeal of action movies from a feminist perspective.

Through performance, sculpture and video, the collective WIVES body metabolizes the violences of the action movie into pure sensation.

ACTION MOVIE debuts January 30-February 3, 2017 at Theatre La Chapelle (Montreal).
