Performing Gender - Dance makes differences

Slovenia - Italy - Spain - The Netherlands - United Kingdom / 2017
Public sharing

Performing Gender – Dance makes differences is a two-year European Cooperation Project between Italy, Slovenia, Spain, The Netherlands and United Kingdom.

It investigates gender and dance, and provides skills useful to develop new forms of narrative for LGBTIQ identities in Europe.

Five international makers and five dramaturgs will train, research, exchange and create within different local communities, and cultural and social environments.

The first Training Week, hosting the five makers and the local dramaturge is taking place in Ljubljana, from 7th to 13th October.

It inscribes itself in the City of Women Festival context and will combine a range of activities, such as practical and theoretical workshops, debates and meetings, encounters with specialists and other artists, as well as intensive dialogue with the local dramaturge.

We will be busy asking ourselves where does dance as a living art form meet gender as a lived performed expression of one’s self?

On the last day of the training week, the international makers will share the process and their first sketches with the audience.

The sharing will be followed by a closing ambiental party with music.

Free entry.
