Belgian collective Ontroerend Goed puts six young women on stage, to talk about how it is to be a female in the Western world at the start of the 21st century. After decades of feminism, six performers make the balance of how to be a woman – dealing with role models, patterns of expectation, persisting inequalities, acquired rights, inner censorship and everyday abuse as well as the new-found liberties and joys of being a female in the free world.
They’ve taken control of their appearance and use their range of expression to great effect. They’ve moved on, past militant anti–?male rage to the belief that men can be just as feminist as women. The performance uses images from the fashion industry, advertisement and porn, language bites exemplifying everyday verbal sexism, drawing on personal experiences as well as social media and song lyrics, showing sublime mastery of the female voice in every sense of the word.
“…It’s the unexpected juxtapositions that make this beautifully put-together show so startling and so thought-provoking. Big, bold, brazen, and not a hussy in sight. Only real women asking what it means to be a feminist.” **** The Guardian – Lyn Gardner
