About: Major Tom

Victoria unknowingly discovered that her dog had prize winning potential at a charity dog show. She seized the opportunity to access the subculture of this extraordinarily exclusive memberís only club.

Major Tomís first championship show was a disaster, feeling an overpowering sense of guilt about her dog being scrutinised, Victoria decided to put herself through the same process by becoming a beauty queen.

Major Tom and Victoria increasingly immersed themselves into the obsessive and confusing realm of personal scrutiny as they participated as genuine contestants and aimed to win. This one woman, one dog show will follow their story. It will reflect on the British fascination with celebrities, beauty, and winning.

To complete the research Major Tom went to Crufts and Victoria at 34 and 5ft 4 competed in Mrs England 2013 beauty pageant. She currently holds the title of Mrs Brighton.

Commissioned and produced by Farnham Maltings
Developed at Battersea Arts Centre, The Showroom Chichester and MAKE, Ireland
Supported by Arts Council England
