10tytöt (2017)

10tytötbanneri

I got a satisfactory grade from a history test, once. I showed it to my friend in order to prove that I’m not the class swot anymore. Yet, I was so ashamed to take that test home.


10tytöt (Sraight-A Girls) is f-ART House collaboration’s debut piece manifesting the personal experience of straight-A-girlness as well as making visible the common discourse used both in media and in social and political contexts. 10tytöt combines movement, text and audiovisuality and works as a platform for the bodily/corporal emergence of straight-A girlness. The performance addresses this straight-A-girl-phenomenon both through the group members’ personal experiences and as a result of media, social and political discourse and educational structures.
