A multi-layered film installation with real-life testimonies, stunning cinematography and bold performances, VIRGIN TERRITORY asks vital questions about responsibility and being an ‘audience’ as we witness children playing in an adult online world.

About

‘Brave and unnerving exploration’ The Guardian

Charlotte Vincent’s VIRGIN TERRITORY takes a bold and uncompromising look at our hyper-sexualised culture and the impact it is having on girls and young women growing up today. We all want to be ‘liked’ and ‘followed’, but what effect does constantly performing for the camera have on our lives?

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 and being an ‘audience’ as we witness children playing in an adult online world.

Adult supervision for under 14’s is advised. VIRGIN TERRITORY contains content that some people may find upsetting. 

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

Directed and Designed by Charlotte Vincent
