Emo Girl


Emo Girl a choir complexion consisting of nine diverse voices and bodies that are staged in an open space. The bodies of the performers represent a range of non-binary, femme and queer identities expressing vulnerability. The voice and body politics are used to transform this vulnerability into strength. The project proposes a new emo cult community inspired by the early 2000s Emo-Goth/Rock subcultures.
