Virgin Territory

2016/17, 80 minutes

VIRGIN TERRITORY premiered at The Place in November 2016, and took an uncompromising look at what it is like for young people to live in an over-stimulating, over-sexualised, digitally captured world. Four adults and four children negotiated some uncomfortable truths about the culture we live in, where bodies are exposed, identities are faked  and our deepest truths remain hidden. Heartbreaking in its honesty and brave in its intent, VIRGIN TERRITORY was  a hopeful, rallying cry to just let our kids be kids.

‘Deeply affecting. Important. Relevant. Brutally honest. Reflective. Delicate. Complex’ Audience member, The Place
