JUST LIKE A WOMAN
“Girls will be boys and boys will be girls
It's a mixed up muddled up shook up world.”
(Lola, The Kinks)
Lectures, performances, readings, installations, screenings, workshops and debates looking at the performance of identity – the ways femininity can be 'performed' and representations of gender can be queered through performance. Just Like A Woman features a dazzling array of UK based artists - women performing women, women performing men, men performing women, and artists who go beyond the limits of gender altogether.
Like A Woman is part of the Live Art Development Agency’s Restock, Rethink, Reflect 3: Live Art and
Feminism initiative, mapping
and marking the impact of performance on feminist histories and the
contribution of artists to discourses around contemporary gender politics. Program features Lois Weaver, George Chakravarthi, The Girls,
Dickie Beau, Nando Messias, Lucy Hutson, Laura Bridgeman &
Serge Nicholson, and David Hoyle.
