Event

Lovely Girls (Work in progress)
About the show:
Chess and Cristina are The Hiccup Project, a comedic dance-theatre company. People commonly refer to them as the lovely Hiccup girls. Its got them thinking Its been 100 years since (some) women got the vote. This was a (bit of a) step towards gender equality, but how liberated are women today?

After diving into the world of romance and heartbreak in critically acclaimed multi-award winning May-We-Go-Round?, Cristina and Chess explore what it means to be a young woman in brand new show Lovely Girls.

As little women, and through their teen years, they were fed fairy tales, stories and images full of the idealized woman; beautiful, sweet, passive, lovely. Now, they are 27. They are feminists. Theyve read lots of books, had tons of conversations, and are feeling empowered. Yet they still find themselves on Google asking; I feel good when an attractive man compliments me, am I still a feminist? Chess and Cristina open up the confusing pot of contradictions, clich├ęs and expectations, that face women today; Have lots of sex and be sexy, but not too much. Strive for a good career, but make time for everyone else. Have curves, but dont be fat. Be assertive, but not bossy Blimey!

Lovely Girls meanders through real womens stories using The Hiccup Projects potent blend of dance, theatre and comedy. It is an insight, a celebration and an ode to being a woman in the 21st Century. A show made by women for women and men, and everyone, regardless of gender.

Physical comedy and dance are stupendous companions when they work  and Chess and Cristina have the energy and the intelligence to make it work.
Fringe Guru

Theatre and dance that throws custard pies at convention. Outstanding.
Fringe Review

Comparable to French and Saunders their work defies theatrical convention in every sense.
Miro Magazine

Men will laugh from their very core in a story every woman can relate to.
