...dreams about girls

mixed reality performance installation


“...dreams about girls” is a performative installation for a drummer, five dancers, a car in live and Virtual Reality. The piece proposes a rite of passage through which the persistent narrative of misogynistic aggression is momentarily interrupted, and replaced by a sequence of powerful dream images in which women turn to violence against men. Interweaving visual material from dreams into a fictional counter-narrative, “...dreams about girls” offers an intimidating spectacle of feminist resistance.
