Reviews and comment from the Demon Crew - creative writers at De Montfort University, Leicester.

Sunday, 26 February 2017


Maybe you've always thought you want to trade in the early 6a.m. commutes, for knee pads and glittery pants while you walk out to thousands with only the greatest hits of mullet rock to accompany you. If so where better to find out more, than a discussion about the performance behind your hidden desire? It's taking place in the Clephan Building at De Montfort University at 4p.m. on Friday, 3rd March. You can book tickets here.

DMU will be welcoming Carrie Dunn, Broderick Chow, Ben Litherland and Claire Warden for a discussion of how professional wrestling might be understood as a performance. Let's hope the chairs are nailed down and the tables stay in one piece.

*As you can see in the picture above, one man is attempting a flying sideways hug in the direction of one who we can only assume is his best friend. The man in the stripy t-shirt is what we call a 'cuddle invigilator' whose job is to make sure the cuddle contains enough love and warm feelings. and warm feelings.
