Thank you for taking the time to learn more about our short dance film Let Them Eat Cake! Here you will find more information about the project, the team, the mood board  and above all the reason why we need You. If you think you need more information, contact us and we will be happy to clarify any doubt.

THE PROJECT

Let Them Eat Cake! is a dance film on girl empowerment, where three teenagers rebel against how society dictates how they see themselves. In Let Them Eat Cake! the three characters transform from being "perfect girls" to agents of change, by embracing who they really are. It will be directed by the choreographer and filmmaker Avatâra Ayuso, whose latest film The Protocol  has received awards all around the world.

The film (of about 10min of length) will be rehearsed in London, shot in Birmingham in January 2022, and post-production in January-February. It will be premiered in March 2022 in our Women in Dance Leadership award ceremony and distributed online and schools along the year.

Here below you can find the part of the mood board created by the filmmaker Avatâra. These images have been shared with the creative team as a stimulus to create the storyboard, costumes, music and choreography

WHY SHOULD YOU SUPPORT THE PROJECT?

  • Because we all know a girl that deserves to be listened to in our family or community.
  • Because this film will be a platform for young people to be heard and empowered.
  • Because research & statistics show there is a need to tackle this issue:

       - 61% of girls and young women in the UK experience poor body image, leading to other potential health risks and less assertive attitudes. Body dissatisfaction and a pressure to be thin have been linked to depressive symptoms.

      - 54% of girls said that images on social media have caused them to worry in relation to their body image as it is difficult to achieve the "ideal"

  • Because young people deserved to be supported by us , adults, and help them grow with a healthy mindset, loving themselves.
  • Because you will make possible the creation of a film with high standards and high quality equipment accessible to young people and young audiences.
  • Because you believe in the power of art to change lives!

  • 15-20% on Costume design and costume making
  • 40% on Pre-Production - Online Rehearsal, Planning Sessions, Council Negotiation, child licence performances and Location Booking.
  • 10-15% on Post Production - Editing, Coding and Platform Distribution

EL CORTO

Este corto de video danza es sobre el empoderamiento de niñas, un espacio donde tres adolescentes se rebelan contra lo que la sociedad dicta cómo se ven a sí mismas. Los tres personajes pasarán de ser "las niñas perfectas" a ser agentes de cambio, abranzando quienes son en realidad. EL corto será dirijido por la coreógrafá y directora de cortos Avatâra Ayuso, cuya película The Protocol ah recibido varios premios internacionalmente.

El corto será de nos 10 minutos, se ensayarán en Londres y Grabará en Birmingham en el Reino Unido en enero de 2022. El estreno se hará en un evento híbrido (en persona y online) en marzo de 2022, en los premios de mujéres líderes de la ONG AWA DANCE. Luego se distribuirá en colegios por el Reino Unido e internacionalmente.

Las imágenes de arriba son extractos del guión e ideas que Avatâra ha desarrollado. También verás las fotos del equipo ceativo! y del equipo de la ONG. Todos van a estar dedicanos desde enero a hacer el proyecto una realidad y proteger el bienestar de las niñas protagonistas.

POR QUÉ DEBERÍAS APOYAR EL PROYECTO?

  • Porque todos conocemos a alguna niña en nuestras familias o comunidad que se merece que la escuchen
  • Porque este corto es una plataforma para que los jóvenes tengan voz y sean escuchados
  • Porque las investigaciones y las estadísticas muestran que es necesario abordar este problema:

- El 61% de las niñas y mujeres jóvenes  experimentan una imagen corporal deficiente, lo que genera otros riesgos potenciales para la salud y actitudes menos asertivas. La insatisfacción corporal y la presión por estar delgada se han relacionado con síntomas depresivos.

- El 54% de las niñas dijo que las imágenes en las redes sociales les han causado preocupación en relación a su imagen corporal ya que es difícil lograr el "ideal"

  • Porque los jóvenes se merecen ser apoyados por nosotros, los adultos, y ayudarlos a crecer con una mentalidad saludable, queriéndose a sí mismos.
  • Porque harás posible la creación de una película con altos estándares y equipos de alta calidad accesible a los jóvenes y al público joven.
  • ¡Porque crees en el poder del arte para cambiar vidas!
