Performance: 1900 - 2030
This solo dance piece is conceived and performed by dancer and choreographer Hannah Buckley. Inspired by mountains, fairy tales and a 1970s body work book for women, The Mountain and Other Tales of She Transformed is a woman performing, a meditation on ‘feminism as the female command of space’ – the many things that this could mean and the many ways it could manifest, and be made manifest.
Hannah Buckley’s work is quietly political and she aims to create processes and art that are spaces for and forms of both critique and care. The primary concern of her work is to question existing social structures of oppression, with a focus on female experience. Before the performance there will be a workshop for female and non-binary people with multi-disciplinary artist Nicola Singh, open to all ages and abilities. Led by Nicola, participants will use mountain imagery, meditation, movement and drawing to co-produce an installation that will then feature in Hannah’s performance.
The performance will take place at the Auditorium at Leeds Art University
