Plastic and fantastic: The Barbie movies
11:30 AM, Monday 22 Apr 2019 (1 hour)
Lunch Monday 12:30 PM to 02:00 PM (1 hour 30 minutes)
Beyond the pink, the heels and the anatomically incorrect bodies lies surprising fun for the SF/F fan. Over 36 movies Barbie travels under the sea, to the fairy realm and into outer space. See what happens when Shakespeare, Dickens and Dumas shimmy through the Barbie looking glass. Have your mind blown as the movies start to comment on each other and Barbie becomes an actor playing the role of Barbie, playing the characters in her own movies, endlessly refracting! Get your sparkle on as you meet Keef and Mick’s roadie, the classically trained troll, and experience the most radical interpretation of ‘The Princess and the Pea’ ever conceived. Presented by Emma Hawkes, Gina Goddard and Rosalie Chilvers.
