Lizzie J Klotz

Fawn considers the act of pleasing as an instinctive response to fear, threat and failure. Why do we seek to please? And how? Fawn draws parallels between the relationship of pleasing another, pleasing an audience and pleasing oneself – as a person, as a dancer and as a woman.

Amy Watson & Dennis Keighron-Foster
Dark Matter

Dark Matter explores the political and social meaning of Vogue as a dance form in the UK today. It focuses on the House of Ghetto, formed in the ashes of the 2008 financial crash by acclaimed choreographer and dance teacher Darren Pritchard, whose strong political message resonates with the essence of Vogue as a platform of resistance.

Eleanor Sikorski
Drawing My Orgasms

In 2017 Eleanor began to create animations that visually describe her orgasms. She uses animation as a fluid, fantastical means to describe what her orgasms feel like (not what they look like). The process is an attempt to destigmatise sexual pleasure, to articulate variety and nuance and to simply celebrate masturbation.

No More Boys and Girls

This eye-opening documentary challenges the ways in which we reinforce gender in our children. Featuring parents, teachers and 7-year-olds, it challenges preconceptions about behaviour, physical strength, emotional intelligence and aptitude. It reveals how we limit children’s potential for growth and happiness. A great stimulus for families who want to explore this topic further.
