Event Details

A conversation with a dancer dancing in conversation with their gender

A rolling archive of tomboyhood

A drop-in durational installation

Give it a spin

What is a tomboy? How does that word live in the body and why would anybody want to grow out of it? How does the gene pool lottery connect with learned patterns of movement to shape our felt sense of body, gender, self and belonging?

TOMBO(Y)LA dances in that space between language and embodiment and opens up the gaps between names, nouns, declarations and the affects, emotions and potentials of embodiment.

TOMBO(Y)LA asks what it might be to move differently within gendered attempts to fix the flux of experience.

You are welcome to join Amy in conversations – thinking out loud and being with the questions rather than being satisfied with the answers. You are welcome to simply watch. You are welcome to come and go.
