Yve Blake – Fangirls
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.
Fangirls is a musical inspired by interviews Yve held with hundreds of teenage fangirls. It’s a story of young women, the stories we tell them, and the ways we underestimate or judge them – with a sound world that is best described as a ‘Beyonce Concert meets Rave meets Church’.
The musical is fantastic and it’s brought to life by a group of amazingly talented women. I was happy to see them twice and the following are some shots from their rehearsals at the Southbank Centre.
