After opening its doors this month CentrE17 in Walthamstow launches a series of cabaret style evenings of female-led performance, Woman, Seriously. The new 120-seat performance venue will host this monthly event of theatre, dance and performance work made by women, curated by Grace Nicol Dance. 

Cabaret style evening of female led performance, Woman, Seriously kicks off on the 31 August with an exciting programme of work from Isis O’Regan, Claudia Palazzo, Katie Dale Everett, The Yonis and much more. Isis O’Regan from Room For Rebellion is a DJ and performance artist. Room For Rebellion hosts synchronised events in aid of Abortion Support Network. Other acts on the 31 August will include: Katie Dale Everett’s film Digital Tattoo, which was created as part of the Channel 4 Random Acts project, work by performance maker Claudia Palazzo and recent London Contemporary Dance School graduates The Yonis.

CentrE17 Artistic Director Max Peters says,

“At CentrE17 we feel it is exceptionally important to promote female-led performance work and are committed to supporting bold new performance.”

An open call will be launched in September for future Woman, Seriously events by Grace Nicol Dance. Grace Nicol Dance is committed to socially engaged work and the promotion of female led performance. CentrE17 is located near Walthamstow tube station and is the London borough of Waltham Forest’s only purpose-built performance space.
