Take Up Space 2024: Gestures of Defiance

Moving Memory Dance Theatre: Gestures of Defiance

Sorry, this event has sold out

Feeling defiant? Come and join us, learn about Moving Memory’s approach to putting the world to rights, loosen up, have a laugh, and let go!

We will celebrate the wit and wisdom of older women via movement and music, subverting perceptions of what it means to be ‘old’.

Within the workshop, we will turn the ‘gaze’ in on ourselves, exploring our welly, our Gestures of Defiance, finding what it is that we want to say to the world currently, creating a ‘stomp’ that demonstrates the strength and power of this community.

No experience is necessary. Please wear clothes and footwear you feel comfortable moving in, and bring a bottle of water.

Moving Memory Dance Theatre challenges ageism and ageist attitudes, producing work that changes the conversations around what it means to be an older woman, placing the older body centre stage, giving voice to a marginalised community.
