Dishonour on Your Cow is a one-woman show on what happens when you become the person someone else wants you to be. Keeping up with other people’s expectations and her picture perfect image of excellent student, wife, and daughter, Silvi Santoso exposes her childhood dreams and teenage years, complete with traumatic memories and mistakes.
But, who can she trust when she can’t hold back the trauma, or when people silence her and make her watch from the sidelines as she desperately tries to pick up the pieces before it’s too late? Funny, dark, emotional, and truthful, Dishonour On Your Cow follows her journey to self acceptance, recovery, and the discovery that the most fulfilling life she can lead is by her own merit, not set by others who try to curate it. Dishonour On Your Cow is an unforgettable show from a survivor that never got justice…off stage, that is.
Dishonour on Your Cow is Silvi Santoso’s first feature show, premiering at select FRINGE WORLD FESTIVAL 2020 venues from January 17 to February 16 in Perth, Australia. A collection of content from her solo shows Bedazzled, Not Everyone In Plenty Of Fish Is A Magical Dolphin, and the National Canadian Tour for Rape is Real, “her storytelling is part autobiography and part stand-up comedy – Santoso brightens up her darkest moments, using comic songs and narrative, bedazzling her life and her outlook – with more cowbell!”
