The Weird Girls Project – Episode 13 Premiered

The performance group The Weird Girls Project’s “Episode 13” took place at the highland resort Thórsmörk and surrounding areas, which was subject to significant ash fall after the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption, producing a piece for Imogen Heap’s “Love the Earth” score.

Part of the episode will premiere at Bíó Paradís on Hverfisgata in Reykjavík on Sunday, August 14, at 5 pm.

Heap gave The Weird Girls Project creator Kitty Von-Sometime two musical pieces to work with and so “Episode 13” is in two parts. Heap has said of the video: “It’s an amazing location and looks really beautiful. Wonderful!” according to a press release.

Von-Sometime had wanted to work in Thórsmörk for several years but the costs of specialized transport made it unattainable.

However, following a fundraiser through the Kickstarter.com website, the project gained sponsorship from both Hostelling International Iceland and Reykjavík Excursions to enable the location to be possible.

Pegasus also partly sponsored the equipment which enabled von Sometime to use the best available film equipment.

“This episode was gifted with perfect weather and the cast and crew of 36 were taken on a truly grueling day’s filming. The experience was very emotional for all the women involved and it was referred to as a magical moment in their lives,” Von-Sometime wrote.

“Part I is filmed around the stunning waterfall Seljalandsfoss and was incredibly difficult to film both from an equipment perspective and due to the freezing glacial water the women were soaked in,” she described, adding that this piece is her personal favorite so far.

“Part II (for which this is the premiere) took place around Húsadalur and follows the women drawing energy from water worship as they follow the river to its source and rebirth into strong and free spirits,” she concluded.

“Part I: Peace” is available to view online here.
