Lecture performance about Lady Hamilton and reinterpretation of her emancipatory performing practice called Attitudes (or Mimoplastic art), using George Romney's idea of combining classical poses with modern allure as the basis for her act. With Attitudes first performed in Naples Emma gained a huge success in Europe. Emma had later thanks to her popularity become not only a close personal friend of Queen Maria Carolina- sister of Maria Antoinette, but had developed into an important political influence. She advised the Queen on how to react to the threats from the French Revolution as Maria Carolina's sister Marie Antoinette had fallen a victim to the Revolution.
Attitudes comment about the aristocratic fear of the sociopolitical change in 18th century within the decomposition of the notion of beauty.
