Virgin Territory – On Film

Film Installation

2017, 75 minutes

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 performing for the camera have on our lives?

“With a sensational cast of performers who combine technical skill with brilliant body language and emotional depth, Vincent delivers forceful messages through her poetic and political dance theatre.”   Josephine Leask, London Dance

VIRGIN TERRITORY is a multi-screen 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.

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.
