Feminist Dance Making

Feminist Dance Making


Part of Encounters - Celebrating Women in Dance festival

For dance artists, practitioners, students and anyone interested in dance and feminism (of all genders!)

How does a feminist awareness impact on making dance in our current climate?

What inspires, enrages and concerns feminist makers?

Join us for a conversation and find out more about the practices of artists such as Rhiannon Faith, Fernanda Muñoz-Newsome, Eleanor Sikorski, Madeline Shann and Beth Cassani, and about how feminist thinking (and activism) impacts on the work these ‘silly, serious and brave contemporary female heroines’* create.

How does feminism influence what work they create, how they create it, who they work with and what structures they create in?

* “Rhiannon Faith is a silly, serious and brave contemporary female heroine. She will go far.” — Total Theatre
