Ladies, Have we Progressed? 1920's-2020's
A satirical sketch exploring the moral relativism of feminine
values in the 1920’s and 2020’s.
Parallels can be drawn between many of the ways women see and have seen the world proving that we truly have not progressed.
In the most humorous fashion,
Violet and Alice live in a parallel universe of both eras. Expressing their opinions that come from exactly the same place. A human place.
Directed and Shot by Armando de Ath Starring Millicent Binks and Angeline Hunt Costume and Props Mary Hunt
A project inspired by artists Sophie Calle, Cindy Sherman, Psychobitches and female stock characters of mid twentieth century cinema. Millicent disguises herself as various caricatures and has gone out, introduced herself to men and had conversations with them about the social politics of dating.

The Burlesque Years
Millicent began her performance career on the burlesque circuit in London and Europe. Appearing on stages often in Paris, Italy and Istanbul. The gallery celebrates this period.
"Millicent is London's own queen of burlesque, regularly performing at the capital's top cabaret nights. Recognised on the cabaret scene & across Europe, Millicent also has a burlesque residency in Istanbul and has performed with Dita Von Teese herself in Paris. She has also modelled for lingerie brand Agent Provocateur."
Millicent is a writer/performer from Suffolk residing in London.
Since graduating with a BA (Hons) at Wimbledon College of Art in Costume Interpretation, Millicent has used costume and characterisation in everything she does. It led her to pursue a performance career in burlesque in which she could costume herself and create personas.
After making a name for herself on the burlesque scene she got a weekly sex column in The London Evening Standard talking about her life in the burlesque world. This had two million readers a week.
Her latest projects include "Alter Shego's". For The Sunday Times magazine, she disguised herself as different women, took self-portraits, went out, introduced herself to random gentlemen and wrote down their reactions.
So far she has written and performed in two short films, "Ladies, Have We Progressed?" which has been shortlisted for the Funny Women Awards 2020 and "MP rumPy pumPy" which was featured on the front page of The Sun for election day 2019.
