Event Details


Open to professional dance artists

Pink Suits workshop is a resistance to gender roles in partner dance.

Together we will develop a non-gendered improvisational language that will inform how we dance with one another. Drawing on the partnering and group improvisation elements of Passing Through technique, Contact Improvisation, Martial Arts and traditional social dances we try to re imagine the rules of partner dancing to create a new and non-gendered form of social dance.

pink suits is a musical / dance performance collaboration between artists Ray Prendergast and Lennie. As a band, pink suits create aggressive political rock music as well as dance, physical theatre and film. Their work is an exploration of fantasy, mental health, politics and is a resistance of binary gender expectations.
