Virgin Territory takes an uncompromising look at our hypersexualised digital culture and its impact on young women growing up today. Many people have the desire to be ‘liked’ and ‘followed’, but what effect does constantly performing for the camera have on our sense of self-worth?
Virgin Territory is a film installation presented across five screens, performed by four children aged 12 – 14 and four adults. With moving performances, stunning cinematography and real-life testimonies, Virgin Territory asks vital questions about responsibility as we witness children playing in an adult online world.
Adult supervision for under 16s is advised.
Virgin Territory contains themes that some people may find upsetting.
Duration: 75 mins
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.
