A screen diva approaches the mirror in a studied pose, views her aged face as a travesty of herself and breaks out into a horrifying scream. This iconic images stems from the film Whatever Happened to Baby Jane (1962) which established the genre of the psycho biddy or hagsploitation movies.

In 2021, all the members of She She Pop will be around 50 years of age. In Hexploitation, they deal with the fear of the hag, the old woman, and the witch. With their ageing bodies, they fight against disappearance and losing social validity, suffered by women beyond childbearing age. They transform the stage into a dark and kitschy film set; a live camera serves as a magnifying mirror and scrutinising instrument. With it, She She Pop, as ageing psycho biddies, explore flaws, obsessions, taboos, and traditional depictions of witches.
