SYNOPSIS : MONSKA explores themes of strength and power in young girls. The work is fundamentally about the performativity of gender roles; presenting the girls in a stereotypical way and then breaking down these preconceived notions. Instead of a traditional dance routine, the girls perform a shadow boxing routine. Punches, hooks, jabs and kicks are featured. The six young girls fearlessly perform in front of the judges, moving unison.
On the MONSKA film shoot 81% of our film crew identified as female or non-binary.
