ENGAGE


A BLOODTHIRSTY MUSICAL

 

inspired by real events

 

'FANGIRLS'

(working title)

A BLOODTHIRSTY MUSICAL BASED ON REAL INTERVIEWS WITH TEENAGE FANGIRLS.

A STORY ABOUT FIRST LOVE, AND BEING PREPARED TO KILL FOR IT.

 
 

HI, I'M YVE

A 13 year old girl told that me she was so in love with Harry Styles that

she'd slit someone's throat to be with him.

So,

I interviewed more than 100 boyband fangirls

and started writing a musical inspired by what they told me.

 

IT IS:

1. A WORK OF FICTION BASED ON VERY REAL EXPERIENCES

 2. A LOVE STORY LIKE NO OTHER

3. ABOUT TEENAGE GIRLS, HOW WE UNDERESTIMATE THEM, and what they're truly capable of

AND

4. THE INSPIRATION FOR THE SCORE IS BEST DESCRIBED AS 'BEYONCE CONCERT MEETS RAVE MEETS CHURCH'.

EXPECT FIERCE POP, OLYMPICS-OPENING-CEREMONY-LEVEL DRUMS AND A GIRLS CHOIR.

 

In April 2016 I was awarded the THE ATYP REBEL WILSON THEATRE MAKER SCHOLARSHIP to develop the show. .

In December 2016 I presented a showcase of 6 songs from the show.
