Episode 15: Beauty is only skin deep

Conceptually Episode 15 was a reaction to both internal and external influences; a statement on the growing trend of plastic surgery for vanity in young women in Iceland and the damage which has occurred from it.

The piece focuses on a group of female creatures who have been self mutilating and their capture of a young victim enticed to join them.

The performance was much harder and more brutal for the participating women and for Kitty herself as a director than usual. The location was an old fishmeal factory, extremely cold, foul smelling and damp. The women’s boundaries and self-acceptance were pushed until they were raw, so that the element of the piece could be accurately captured.
