From the team behind the highly acclaimed Persona comes a theatrical experience of radical and daring intimacy, inspired by Frank Wedekind's 1903 novella.

In the middle of nowhere lies a unique boarding institution for girls. Here, in this idyllic refuge, cut off from the outside world, a group of young girls studies ballet and biology. We watch as they’re groomed for an unknown future.

Silent and tranquil, the safety of their surrounds is laced with threat. Each aspect of their lives – presented and viewed in lucid, cinematic detail – is book-ended by their unexplained arrival and departure.

On the Bodily Education of Young Girls brings together some of Melbourne’s most exciting theatre makers, to create a sublime exploration of innocence and power.

Created in collaboration with St Martins Youth Arts Centre. Performed by teens and adults, for an adult audience.
