THANK HEAVEN FOR LITTLE GRRRLS is a dance theatre performance for a cast of girls aged 8-12 years. They build a construction with power tools, live and in real time, in a metaphor for an imagined future. THFLG was created out of a desire to carve out a space for young girls. Inspired by the devastating statistics that girls fall out of love with STEM subjects from the age of 11 onwards, and the Junkyard/Adventure Playground Movement, THFLG challenges how we see girls, and ask questions about risk and childhood. Between April 2019 and September 2019, we spent our time devising, dancing, and making slime.
