A GIRL AND A GUN
‘All you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun’ Jean-Luc Godard
Last year, Louise started noticing girls and guns everywhere. She obsessed overthem in pop videos, felt a bit disgusted about them in video games, and tried not to see them in hardcore porn. And she wondered whether Godard was right.
This is a show about girls and guns. It’s a show that asks two people to take to the stage and play out a film script in front of you. It asks what it means to be a plot device, what it means to be a hero, and what it means to watch. Expect gun-twirling, line-dancing, Nancy-Sinatra-singing.
And me. And you.
