Émilie Charriot stages the poignant book of Virginie Despentes. Here, the author particularly describes in a harsh and restrained way her rape and her experience as a prostitute. 

In a simple but never simplistic way, Charriot uses the strength of the text, its paradoxes and its complexity to highlight its universality. Behind the activist stands a writer and above all an individual who theorizes on her proper history. More than a feministic discourse, King Kong Theory is presented as an emancipation, as an affirmation – bold and galvanizing – of a freedom. That of a human being who manages to keep going, whatever happens, whatever the risk is to take.
