Filetti @ 'The Convent' - This is the kind of art I can fuck with

Whatโ€™s it about?

Six women go on a retreat to a convent and love like nuns for a few days.

My experience.

Letโ€™s talk about this show.

Iโ€™ll be honest, walking in, I saw the medieval stone arches and the cloud projections on the walls and I thought: Okayโ€ฆ religion. Iโ€™m gonna be open-minded and enjoy myself.

Bring it, Jesus. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ Letโ€™s go.

Yโ€™all, my expectations could not have been more wrong. I was pleasantly surprised to see these beautiful women talk about womenโ€™s bodies, relationships and history. And not under a man named Jesus, but under their own female Gods. Specifically, Mother Abbess.

This is her โ€”> ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผ

She runs a womenโ€™s retreat in a convent in France. A convent that doesnโ€™t quite run on religion, but rather on spirituality (although sometimes these overlap). The point is, the women that attend the retreat are:

๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป Dimlin

๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿฝ Jill

๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป Bertie

๐Ÿ‘ฑ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ Patti

๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿป Wilma

& my fave, ๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป Tina.

These women come from different walks of life โ€” ๐Ÿ‘ฐ๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ“๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€โš•๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿผโ€๐ŸŽค๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป โ€” you know what Iโ€™m saying? Diverse backgrounds = diverse views. Clinks to that! ๐Ÿฅ‚

While getting drunk and eating grapes, they discuss the fascinating history of convents. Convents used to be a place for women who wanted to become educated in a manโ€™s world. In return for their education, they became celibate and were locked in a convent. Like?!?! These women were so smart!

They also talked about how religionโ€™s history has doomed it to be completely male-centric. It tends to exclude female perspectives and reduces them to Virgin Marys or Mary Magdalenes. The virgins or the sluts. Speaking of sex, these girls talk about it. ๐ŸŒš A lot. But not in a raunchy, lustful manner. Rather in a beautiful, empowering and accepting manner. Watching them take control of their sensual power was inspiring. I literally went home and took more agency in my love life instead of waiting for something to happen. Mhmmโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ”™๐Ÿ”›๐Ÿ”

I cannot emphasize enough how refreshing this play is!! Please go!! See for yourself!!
