Part stand-up, part music performance and part emotional unraveling, ‘Dumped’ is about surviving through song.
We are so geared towards LOVE and finding THE ONE and as such, there is SO MUCH MATERIAL on break-ups. But for Emily, a lot of this break-up content just wasn’t helpful. She didn’t want to watch rom-coms where the cis-gendered, white, heteronormative protagonist cries into a bucket of ice cream, eventually finding love in an unexpected series of quirky events. She didn’t want to watch motivational speeches on how this would make her a stronger person. She wanted to be pathetic. Break-up songs let her do this, with 0% perspective and absolutely no shame.
This show unpacks the beautiful, pathetic and empowering break-up song genre, highlighting the good, bad and the most pitiful. Part stand-up, part music performance and part emotional unraveling, Dumped is about surviving through song.
Emily Howarth is a London based comedian and performance artist who makes visual comedy spectacles and ridiculous feminist chaos.
