Audrey Cook is a live performance practitioner bringing absurdist whimsy to their home of Teesside. Audrey likes to explore non-human identity in their work, and find collective empowerment in ideas of ugliness and filth. They like to channel this through different variations of their queer performance persona, now known as ‘Rat Savage’.
