Details

Charlotte Vincent’s Virgin Territory takes an uncompromising look at our hyper-sexualised digital culture and its impact on girls and young women growing up today, ever more relevant since the emerging and continuing #MeToo movement. We all want to be ‘liked’ and ‘followed’, but what effect does constantly performing for the camera have on our sense of self-worth?

Virgin Territory is a multi-layered film installation, performed by four children aged 12-14 and four adults, with real-life testimonies, stunning cinematography and bold performances screened across five large televisions mounted on school benches.

With moving, resilient performances at its core, Virgin Territory asks vital questions about responsibility as we witness children playing in an adult online world.

Adult supervision for under 16s is advised.
Virgin Territory contains themes that some people may find upsetting.
Duration: 75 mins

Vincent Dance Theatre is a National Portfolio Organisation, funded by Arts Council England, and Associate Company at Brighton Dome. Virgin Territory was co-commissioned by Brighton Festival 2017 and The Place London, supported by Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
