Overgeneralization is a human tendency, a tendency which lies at the core

 of Girls

Five women in red, on a narrow white floor, exposing themselves to stubborn cliches of femininity which

 appear at every turn. Voices go up to please, to protest, to pacify.  Gestures are minimal. Flirtatious, as if taken from the catalogue of male fantasy.

Although it might seem that the women are the ones in the spotlight, there

 is no mistaking the risk for all those who sit in the dark and observe. 

Five women are gathered here, engaged in a complicated dialogue with the expectations and demands of society sitting invisibly, mightily, inescapably upon all our shoulders.



“It is difficult to write about GIRLS. It resists dismantling like a live creature. In an almost miraculous manner, it succeeds in being a contradiction in terms. This is a formalistic work, to the bone, which does not have even a drop of rigidity or dryness. It is full of grace but also wisdom and depth; it is frivolous and objectifying yet at the same time also censorious and saturated with grief and pain.”
