As part of Representation of the People: Act Groundwork Pro are hosting a series of discussions/events to celebrate 100 yrs since women achieved the right to vote and equal suffrage was acheived for men. We’ll be asking where are we now? as we continue conversations around gender equality and examine action in our art form

Join us on Tue 16th Jan 5.45 – 7.30 at Three Doors Up, (Queens Arcade) over a glass of wine and bite to eat for:

Amy Bell – Missing in Action: Gender Guerrillas

Amy’s event will focusing on queer issues, the marginalisation or invisibility of queer women in dance and the lack of trans/nonbinary representation in our art form.

An opportunity to chew over how feminist and queer issues intersect. Amy questions why queer and unconventional femininities are still so marginalised in dance? What can we do about it? She will share some of her experiences in dealing with queer visibility in dance and open up an active, non judgemental space to think, talk and plan together.
