How do women portray, represent, stereotype, envision themselves today? How aware are we as makers and viewers about the body images and relationships we create and receive on a private and public sphere? How much diversity is there really? And, actually, what are female bodies?
Female Bodies are political, social, sexual, aesthetic, spiritual, economic and medial. This symposium is a creative and discursive platform, where we can discuss, question, engage and exchange what it means to work as a female performance artist both in a national and international context today. So let's talk about it, let's talk about female bodies.
National and international performers, artists and thinkers in the fields of Dance and Academia are invited to MIND IN THE FLESH.
Performers include Liz Aggiss, Editta Braun Company, David Hoyle and Lucy Suggate
MIND IN THE FLESH performance programme is supported by Limerick City of Culture 2014.
