INBETWEEN

INBETWEEN is a durational performance made in collaboration between two 23-year-old artists and four teenage girls. It explores the transition between girlhood and womanhood from different perspectives: from girls on the cusp of womanhood and from women who sometimes still feel like girls.

INBETWEEN was created and performed by Rachel Ashmead, Melissa Bell, Ellie Dubois, Erin Gallagher, Brooklyn Simpson and Aby Watson for //BUZZCUT// 2015.

…Tumbling, suggestive of childish freedom turns to self-conscious gestures imbued by an awareness of changing bodies. More sleek movement, augmented by counting, serves as a reminder of borrowed time and the ephemeral nature of innocence. It is at once uncomfortable, fragile and rather beautiful to watch.
