Performing Gender Research Sharing (with Gender Moves)Event type: Performance Part of: Performing Gender | Working with Artists
Fri 26 Oct, 6:00pm
Venue: Yorkshire Dance
WAITING LIST ONLY - please follow the link below
Slovenian dance artist Nataša Živković and ten emerging UK dancers share the results of a week-long professional development residency.
This is part of Performing Gender, a five-nation partnership investigating new forms of narrative for gender identities, now in its second year.
Nataša’s current research is into an unusual phenomenon; the ‘sworn-virgins’ of Montenegro. Since medieval times in remote, strongly patriarchal villages, if the head of a household dies without a male heir, one of his daughters can choose to become a man. But this ‘privilege’ comes at a price…
The ten dancers joining Nataša are Stephanie Donohoe, Tora Hed, Charlotte Jones, Marie Koehl, Jemma Mae, Olivia Paddison, Maria Popova, Imogen Molly Reeve, Reynaldo Jr Santos & Emily Snow.
Our local Gender Moves group, facilitated by artists Phil Sanger and Fernanda Prata, will also share the outcomes of their recent creative workshops.
