Presented by Queen's Others
Are you ready for your close up? is an installation that performs the constant objectification of women in the film industry. It’s a half-hour performance split into two halves – in the first half, a man is directing actresses and in the second, a woman is directing actresses.
About the company
Queen's Others are students studying Drama at Queen Mary's. This installation was developed for a module called 'Theatre And Its Others', inspired by George Kuchar’s I, an actress and by examples from the blog ‘Shit people say to women directors and other women in film’.
