Fan Girls

Turbine Platform

A 13-year-old girl told Yve Blake that she would ‘slit someone’s throat to be with the man I love’. She was talking about Harry Styles.  Award winning Theatremaker Yve Blake will present a selection of songs from ‘FANGIRLS’, a brand-new musical inspired by interviews with hundreds of teenage fangirls. It’s a story of young women, the stories we tell them, and the ways we underestimate them — with a sound world that is best described as a ‘Beyonce Concert meets Rave meets Church’. Yve’s here to tell us what she found, what a twelve year old girl taught her about womanhood, and why Fangirls are her heroes.
