Nasty Women celebrates women throughout history who managed to really piss people off. From composers to revolutionaries, scientists to emperors, political firebrands to murderers, this virtual reality documentary experience will smash the cookie-cutter idea of woman-ness as it has been defined throughout history.
The women, who until now have been banished to the margins of the history books, will finally speak for themselves. Their stories are diverse and difficult. They flourished under adversity, failed, defied and adapted, and often enjoyed their lives way too much for the comfort of those around them. Their bravery and distinction was too threatening to win the recognition of history’s conquerors, but today, at last, with glorious wit and style, they will be celebrated.
Nasty Women uses the device of a decrepit and crumbling ‘Museum of Nasty Women’ that comes to life and is rebuilt as a glorious monument to these women, as the user explores the building and stories within.
