Why be Seen? With Gillian Dyson Moss, Funmi Adewole Elliott and Susan Kempster | 2.00-3.30pm


What does it feel like to perform your ageing body? How are women’s bodies read as they age?  What is the relationship between older performer and audience? Why be seen? 

In this panel talk Gillian Dyson Moss is joined by Funmi Adewole Elliott and Susan Kempster as they ponder the queering of the body through the ageing process and ask how we redefine our femininity as expectations of women shift in age.  

These three acclaimed artists, from varied practices, share their extensive experiences as performers, dancers, dramaturgs and educators before inviting an open and honest conversation about ageing as a woman in dance.
