The Sylph, the Vixen and the Bombshell

Bridie Gane

This residency will be exploring conceptions of different female narratives e.g: the sylph, the vixen and the bombshell.

Working with three different generations of women, we will be exploring how these narratives might transform on different bodies, and how we can mix and match to create new ones. Exploring the imagery and physicality of each narrative whilst embracing difference and escaping our perceived limitations of age, physicality and behaviours.

This residency aims to challenge the notions of both self image and the pressure of rigid expectations. I want to ask 'is it possible or desirable for a woman to be everything expected of her?'
