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

What’s it about?

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

My experience.

Let’s talk about this show.

I’ll be honest, walking in, I saw the medieval stone arches and the cloud projections on the walls and I thought: Okay… religion. I’m gonna be open-minded and enjoy myself.

Bring it, Jesus. πŸ™πŸΌ Let’s go.

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

This is her β€”> πŸ‘©πŸΌ

She runs a women’s retreat in a convent in France. A convent that doesn’t quite run on religion, but rather on spirituality (although sometimes these overlap). The point is, the women that attend the retreat are:

πŸ‘©πŸ» Dimlin

πŸ‘©πŸ½ Jill

πŸ§’πŸ» Bertie

πŸ‘±πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ Patti

πŸ§‘πŸ» Wilma

& my fave, πŸ‘§πŸ» Tina.

These women come from different walks of life β€” πŸ‘°πŸ½πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸŽ“πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€βš•οΈπŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸŽ€πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’» β€” you know what I’m saying? Diverse backgrounds = diverse views. Clinks to that! πŸ₯‚

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 man’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 religion’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. 🌚 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. Mhmm… πŸ”™πŸ”›πŸ”

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