Oligny titled her lastest dance-theatre creation 24 x Caprices (24 x Whims), but I think a better title would have been 4 x Bridget[te] - A Tribute...

Bridget[te] #1 - Bardot

Four women in various portrayals of Bardot as the 60's sex kitten, literally bursting out of their clothes into assorted states of undress--but that's okay because they're liberated.

Bridget[te] #2 - Jones

As in Bridget Jones' Diary. Four women in various states of self-examination, lurch from one end of the emotional spectrum to the other. Either laughing or crying hysterically or absorbed in moments of quite repose. "Am I too fat?" "How do I look?" "Is this outfit okay?" Asking all the questions that a modern woman should be reflecting upon today.

Bridget[te] #3 - Fonda

She was the mouthy, doped-out, bikini-clad surfer chick who lounged on the couch of her bad boy gang-banging boyfriend in Quentin Tarantino's 70's-styled film, Jackie Brown. Four women alternate zoning out and getting into the action, flirting with danger, kitschy-cool ladies on the hype tip. Word.

Bridget[te] #4 - Nielsen

Remember her? She was the ultra blond and ultra sexy Danish model/actress who married, and later divorced, Sylvester Stallone, followed by football player Mark Gastineau. Ultimately more famous as a sex-bomb pin-up than for her acting. Her online guest-book includes comments such as "I like your layout! i want to lick your feet.i imgine [sic] you with black underwear and high heels pretanding to be a school teacher," and, "Love the site, especially the swimsuit and topless pictures. Do you have any nude pics? Brigitte is the sexiest woman on the planet..." Four women star in a production that probably won't win the FIND's "Prix du Public," but will receive mash notes similar to the afore-mentioned.
