Ladylike by Ella Mema Company
@ Dance CityBook Now
12 July 2018
Fusing dynamic hip hop with the tempestuous and sexually charged Rumba, LADYLIKE is a new piece of dance theatre which takes a fierce, frank and funny look at the potential and the limitations of gender roles in today’s society. Based on interviews with young women and hip hop and Latin dancers, Ella Mesma Company have created a new ritual for women to explore pleasure, consent, and gender roles – purging clichés and celebrating sisterhood.
Get along to Dance City early as DJ Nandy will be playing Latin and Hip Hop in the social space from 6pm and there will be an exhibition of artwork by Hugo Canuto.
