Calendar Girls is a humorous exploration of woman as a performing spectacle who is intrinsically at home in nature—or is she? Through a played-out tension, it becomes apparent that she has been staged within a culturally choreographed and Picturesque space. As the performance finally ensues, the viewer’s expectation is destabilized. The result—ungraceful and chaotic—allows the exposure of the fallacy of the show. In her final act, a stripped-down and joyous freedom of expression restores the Calendar Girl’s sense of self and her humanity.
