Project Outline

The general idea of the performance is my personal response to our rape culture that encourages victim blaming. I would like to research and explore the topic of victimization further and want to go beyond sexual assault and address the wider culture of victim blaming. A Dark Blue Daffodil Is a work in progress and is strongly influenced by my own and other women’s life experience. I have dedicated a lot of time on researching Brock Turner’s case, the tendency of courts to excuse a perpetrator's behaviour when he does not fit their preconceptions of what a rapist looks and acts like, all the while the victim's traumatic experience is ignored or even blamed upon them.

Support Outline

As a young artist i appreciate a chance to get constructive criticism and new ideas how to develop my work from more experienced professionals. I am looking for a chance to meet people with exciting ideas who would be interested sharing ideas and maybe in future work together. I would also be interested getting more help/criticism/idea on technical side of theatre (lights, sound, light since I find that the weak point of mine.
