Spoken word and performance artist Subira Joy explores their experiences being targeted by the police as a Black, queer and trans person in the UK. 

We’ve all got a cop inside our heads. 

It’s up to you what you do about that. 

Combining striking visual imagery with powerful language, this new work examines the impact of the police in our communities and how we internalise their role to repress and suppress ourselves into submission.

Tracing narratives of police encounters while centring themes of violence, gaslighting and abuse of power, this work exposes how we impede our liberation when confronted by our inner cop.

Kill the Cop Inside Your Head truly stands out as one of the highlights of my Edinburgh Fringe experience this year. The show confronts the deeply pressing issue of police violence against Black and queer and trans people and the show’s form and artistic approach are equally riveting, boasting edgy aesthetics, powerful visuals, and compelling choreography.” – People of Theatre.

Developed with support from Arts Council England, Buzzcut, Marlborough Productions, Cambridge Junction, ACCA and ONCA.
