Louise Orwin

PRETTY UGLY

Pretty Ugly
6-10 August 4.15pm
Drill Hall Studio

This show is about you rating me based solely on my looks…

It is also about a recent worldwide trend of teenage girls posting videos on YouTube asking viewers to rate their looks. Pretty Ugly follows my trail of research into how Generation YouTube uses the ever widening field of social networking to reach others. There is a live YouTube experiment, some Britney, a tender and inappropriate love story, and some of my childhood toys. It is about our obsessions, and pretensions, and teenage girls – but don’t let that put you off. It is about you and me and the internet.

Pretty Ugly feels genuinely urgent and deeply necessary. It demands, and deserves, to be seen.
***** Exeunt

A timely, powerful performance from Louise Orwin – very impressive stuff.
