Drunk Girl: An Experiment (May 2014)

Drunk Girl is a performative experiment that explores cultural representations of ‘drunk girls’– from club-hopping teeny-boppers, to wine-clinking, high-heel-clicking savants. (now that’s a hypen-heavy sentence)

Drunk Girl was workshopped at Canadian Association for Theatre Research’s recent conference in May 2014 (Congress 2014). A theatrical piece deeply influenced by performance art, Drunk Girl presents a number of literary and cultural references to women and alcohol, while the presenter drinks heavily. From new studies on female alcoholism to the celebratory ladies night,  Drunk Girl asks us to rethink stereotypes of female drinkers, and question societal perspectives on the joyous and abusive aspects of women and drinking.
