THE WEIRD GIRLS PROJECT
I have to emphasise that the participants are only female and the project (no need to be Einstein) is named after them. The result of the project is of visual nature, but the centrepiece is the event itself and the reaction of the girls to the costumes, their improvisation and the force that becomes apparent when they collaborate. The women are of different ages, educational background and experience and do not necessarily know each other before the day of the performance.
The bombastic praise towards the sole gender might hint you that I am suggesting some feminist movement that is about to go burn their bras, but it is far from that. The grout that is united by owning a vagina is talking only about themselves and their problems. The women in the project are not studying theatre and are not professional (implied by the popculture) supermodels. The goal of the project is to encourage nonconformist women whose bodies do not follow social norms to get rid of any negative emotions caused by the existing stereotypes.
During more than 4 years of its existence the project gave birth to more than 20 episodes of various forms. It was started with a very naive note stating lack of experience, but has matured throughout its course. Kitty creates the concept of every event, but always involves various photographers, costume designers and filmmakers to make the project lively and meaningfully collaborative.
