Iceland’s Weird Girls Post Shanghai Video

Iceland-based artist Kitty von-Sometime and her performance group The Weird Girls were recently in Shanghai to produce a photographic episode within a seven-day turnaround supported by Converse China. The outcome has now been posted.

The episode was an exploration of how the Chinese women reacted to the principle of the Weird Girls Project and let go of their boundaries and reservations.

“It was a completely different experience, both in the methods to get the women to let go and the challenge to direct with language difficulties,” as Kitty described in a press release. “It was an incredibly gratifying experience,” she added.

The trip was a test run for a series to take place during 2012 in various locations around China. There will be six to eight episodes produced during the group’s spring tour of the country: four in major cities and two to four in other locations in which local Chinese women will participate.
