The Femmes Fatales are a collective of physical performance artist(e)s masquerading as a "punk band." They are beautiful, grotesque, aggressive, submissive. They are madonnas, whores, mothers, wives, girlfriends, mistresses, harpies, heroines. They are EVERYTHING EVERYONE EXPECTS them to be. They writhe, spasm, hypnotise, suffocate and bewitch. They harness the power of sex and childbirth. They want to fight you, they want to f*$% you, they want to bear your babies. They aim to flatter, to serve and be true ladies. Or do they...?
