WHAT INSPIRED THE PIECE

For years, you couldn’t see a piece of media without hearing about how a woman had been kidnapped and imprisoned in a ‘sex dungeon’. With the surge of interest in crime documentaries recently, ‘Bea in the Basement’ brings what audiences are craving on Netflix to life.

‘Bea in the Basement’, looks at a scenario that haunts women and explores what hope there is to be found in a seemingly hopeless situation. It is important that women’s stories are told with their voices and that is why the focus is on Bea and Gia. Who took them is irrelevant and his name should not be remembered; the women’s lives he is destroying should be.

“My work has a strong female focus and the goal of my art is to create a wider range of roles for the women of Brisbane” says writer/director Victoria Posner, this is the second piece Posner brings to Anywhere Festival; last year she was at the helm of female-led comedy ‘Here Comes the Bride?’.
