‘11 doomed sweethearts of subterfuge, countless broken fingernails and only one getaway car!’

This collaboration between Felicity Bott and Bec Dean mashed two female archetypes from 19th and 20th century art: the bell tutu-ed ‘willis’ from romantic ballets like Swan Lake, La Sylphide and Giselle with Hitchcock’s heroines in films such as The Birds and Marnie.  The result was an alternately coiffured and chaotic cycle as 11 young women performed a dance of restraint that gave way to hysteria that saw a return to restraint, and so on.
