Performance: Visions of Agony, Redemption and Justice
  • Theatre 1, Roland Levinsky Building, Plymouth University

Save event

Professional wrestling is an art form that is as culturally valid as a feature film, a work of art or a ballet performance. However, with a demographic often characterised as ‘blue collar’, it has been misunderstood by ‘white collar society’. For audiences from the 1500s to the present day, wrestling provides visions of agony, redemption and hope for justice that mark everyday life.

This fun event combines an introduction to the historical significance of professional wrestling by Dr G.H. Bennett, Associate Professor (Reader) in History, Plymouth University and a demonstration ‘wrestling show’ by Devon’s oldest pro-wrestling promotion, the Plymouth Wrestling Association.
