A piece about female heroes.
About the Piece
I don’t give a damn what the people say
I’m gonna do it, gonna do it my way
Gonna let it all out an do my thing
Boom boom boom an a bang bang bang
Oh-do your thing
- Basement Jaxx
Sheroes takes the general increased interest of society and the arts in strong female characters as an incentive to question our relationship to heroism.
Six dancers set out in search of possible heroines and their attributes. They question old ideas of female heroism and use them to develop new ones.
