Listen to Smile, Kill The Angel at the beginning of The Verb’s podcast here.

Commissioned by The Verb for BBC Radio 3 for International Womens Day 2019, ‘Smile, Kill The Angel’ follows the program’s theme of discarded words and names. The words from Professor Ann Oakley’s ‘Women Peace & Welfare’ are mingled with Virginia Woolf’s essay Killing the Angel in The House, along with elements of a previous cathartic performance by Ingrid in response to workplace misogyny and paraphrases Margaret Atwood to finish.
