A dancer, an actress, an empty stage. With no tricks, nor vehemence Émilie Charriot adapts the powerful book by Virginie Despentes. With raw and controlled words, the author recounts among other things her rape and her experience as a prostitute. The powerful text is staged subtly, relying on its paradoxes, its complexity so as to better shed light on its universality. Behind the activist we can sense the writer and above all the individual, who theorises her life. Beyond feminism, King Kong Théorie can be experienced as the account of emancipation, the brave and exciting assertion of freedom. That of a human being who intends to still be standing, no matter what, regardless of the risks.
