The Bechdel Test 2019
BATS ImprovThrough May 25th
BATS Improv explores the idea that women can perform in cinematic, long-form productions without having to fall back on hackneyed women’s issues and roles in The Bechdel Test at Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture. BATS’ Bechdel Test seeks to explore other possibilities for female characters that can be insufficiently represented in fiction and entertainment.
Join the mostly female cast as they celebrate women leading fully realized lives that do not depend on outdated gender identity concepts prevalent in mass media. Marvel at scenes where women discuss topics other than men, marriage, and babies: which many cultural observers suggest are the primary dialogue themes available to women in contemporary cinema.
