Description

As the only dyke in the dance class, Amy finds new moves for a more radical notion of femininity. A witty journey of transformation and becoming, blending dance, text, animation and live sound. How do we read a gender forecast in constant flux? 'A strident call to arms conveyed with the lightest of touches. Watch this space – new ways of imagining women in dance are on the horizon’ **** (Everything-Theatre.co.uk). Commissioned by The Place, supported by Arts Council England, Tanzhaus Zürich and Yorkshire Dance. Part of the British Council Edinburgh Showcase 2019.
