What is a performance? Is it action? Is it sex? Is it a pencil made by the Sanfor Corporation in America?

With Black Warrior, Lisa Östberg and Kim Hiorthøy takes you through everything you need to know. Props, ideas, location, subtext, even expectations. Nothing is spared, everything is laid bare. With easy-to-understand illustrations, fun songs and penetrating logic, Black Warrior will change the way you think and feel. Forever. There is also a spanish course.
