The Muffia is a performance art group which expresses its political critique and ideas through live art performances, theatre, street interventions, presentations and workshops. It aims to provoke a questioning of cultural norms on the themes of gender, identity, ethnicity, and the body.
We began in 2008 by taking our practice to the streets of London and Manchester. This was the easiest way to access audiences that don’t normally interact with live art. Performances have since been presented in theatres and various performance spaces and specifically for feminist conferences and festivals. The Muffia has also featured in The Guardian and on BBC radio.
