Full contact, female-focused, self-organising and community run – Roller Derby is the fastest-growing sports in the world.

ROLLER is a new show interrogating female aggression, alternative community, feminist economics and damage. What can Roller Derby reveal about bodies, competition and belonging?


ROLLER has been awarded the 2017 Oxford Samuel Beckett Theatre Trust Award.

It will at the Barbican Pit Theatre, London from the 23 Nov to the 2nd December 2017.


During the research process, Mars.tarrab are watching a lot of Roller Derby, spending time with The Brighton Rockers at bouts and training, interviewing players, feminist economists and older sports women. After one evening donning the kit and falling over a lot, they have decided to remain outsiders.


The first phase of investigation was supported by Greenhouse, an initiative by House Theatre.
