HARMLESS BEING was co-produced by Künstlerhaus Mousonturm in the frame of Tanzplattform Rhein-Main 2018 and financially supported by the City of Frankfurt and the Women Fund of the University of the Arts Berlin.
Taking inspiration from the Japanese low-budget erotic film “Guerilla Girl Boss” (1972), in which solidarity among women gangs counters patriarchy, poverty and violence, the protagonists of HARMLESS BEING take time for creating spaces to exchange and confront each other, to explore their own emotions and reactions, and to find ways to express their need and care for each other.
We keep telling about heroines as lonesome fighters that revenge rape or other mistreatment in a patriarchic world by taking on controlled, cold-blooded manners and using lethal weapons.
HARMLESS BEING projects a common space in which each audience member is marked with a need to value each other's presence, help and perspective.
