Two women, three voices, one story… 

Phil is keeping a secret that she might never overcome. Helen is an artist with opportunities but must battle everyone’s expectations. A swan sings… 

Desperate to stand out amongst a sea of artists and pressured to exploit her own narrative, Helen compromises a close friendship when she finds inspiration in Phil’s story. But is it possible to tell someone’s story without silencing them along the way? 

Written and directed by Masha Kevinovna, and produced by Nikita Karia, The Girl With Glitter in Her Eye tells the story of a complex, female friendship complicated by the revelation of trauma and examines where the boundaries of consent lie. Fusing spoken word, original composition, live music and exceptional performances, OPIA Collective – a collaboration of female and LGBTQIA+ artists – explore socially and politically challenging topics in their trademark multidisciplinary style. 

Director Masha Kevinovna said, ‘The original aim with this story was to explore and expose rape culture that is engrained into our society yet as the show developed it evolved into becoming a story about consent and the different contexts in which the lines are blurred. It is a particularly important theme not just for me personally but in the current political landscape where voices are being removed or silenced with ease. Stories bring us together but how often do we listen?’
