Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman
You’re invited to enter a liminal space between girlhood and womanhood, and watch as we tear apart Britney’s conservatorship, victim-blaming and female autonomy - all while drunk on early-2000s MTV nostalgia.
Remember that Britney-themed sleepover you had in 2002? Welcome back to your mum’s basement, sort of… Come over, put on your pjs, try your best to sing karaoke without waking your dad. But wait, you’re not a girl anymore, are you? Are you a woman? Something in-between? None of the above?
In ‘Not a Girl Not Yet a Woman’, two confused performers in their late-twenties submerge themselves in Britney’s story to interrogate their own adultness. Expect fun noughties nostalgia as they take you through a coming-of-age, Britney-themed sleepover. Dabbling in dance, live music, other-people’s-poetry, comedy, and game structures, they unpack what we can learn from the Princess of Pop (while trying not to have an existential crisis). It’s messy, it’s a 13-year-old’s sleepover nightmare, and it’s about control.
