 Performing Gender

Performing Gender


A chance to experience five new solo works in development and join in the conversation about dance, activism and gender.

Each artist will present a sketch of their work, representing a richness of ideas, approaches and enquiry into gender.

Featuring work from
Roberta Racis (Italy)
Nataša Živkovic (Slovenia)
Jija Sohn (The Netherlands)
Koldo Arostegui González (Spain)
Sophie Unwin (The UK)

Performing Gender is a two-year programme that provides dance artists with knowledge, skills and tools to develop a new form of narrative for LGBTQI+ identities.

Artists have so far attended training weeks in Bologna and Ljubljana and this presentation is the culmination of the training week in Leeds.

In October, one of the five artists will be back in Leeds to lead a choreographic intensive on dance and gender for ten local emerging dance makers
