A 23 year old Indian girl is fatally gang raped in 2012 by 6 men on a private bus in New Delhi. Following her death, heavy protesting leads to breakthrough policy change demanding more protection for India’s women. Anatomy of Violence investigates the cultivation of misogyny and how it fuels sexual violence against women across the globe. Why are women so often victims of sexual crimes? Why do perpetrators hold their victims accountable? How does creed, policy, poverty and society act as a governing force on a crime so heinous traumatising. Anatomy of Violence takes the audience on a bold exploration, juxtaposing six fictional sex offenders against their victims.
