Work In Progress – Looking towards July 4th

20150521_110129

As one of the Next Choreography┬áparticipants who will be presenting their own work at the Next Choreography Festival on the 4th of July, I’m beginning to really appreciate the complexities of producing something worthwhile!

My exhibition will focus on the lack of female choreographers and creative artists in Britain, examining why we have so many young women in dance training, yet a glaring absence of female choreographers.

Over the next few weeks, I will be interviewing various inspirational women in the Arts, including Siobhan Davies and Jude Kelly and gaining an insight into how these women got to where they are. For me, the chance to create this work is hugely important as it is a subject I am very passionate about, and as a young woman who wants to be a Choreographer and Artistic Director, I aspire to emanate such figures.
