About Gender Moves
Thanks to generous funding from Leeds Inspired, we are able to run a programme in Leeds alongside Performing Gender.
Gender Moves will recruit up to 20 participants from the LGBT+ community of the city, led by two local dance artists and two assistant young dance-makers.
The group will take part in three workshops at Yorkshire Dance in early summer, exploring ideas about physical gender expression in dance. In one of these workshops they will work with the five Performing Gender artists. They will also attend the Performing Gender showcase event on 1st June 2018.
In the autumn, the group will gather again to create a short new dance work based on the earlier workshops’ conversations and research and on their own experience as members of the LGBT+ community. The work will be performed informally to an invited audience during the week of the visit to Leeds by one of the Performing Gender artists.
