Woman SRSLY Takeover: Wildlife in Strange Waters at The Place Theatre

28 Feb 2019

For one night only female performance art collective Woman SRSLY take over The Place to present a programme of unique and challenging performance by socialised female and female identified artists. 

Woman SRSLY returns on the 14 March to take over The Place Theatre, bringing an evening of artists that span live art, film, dance, theatre, cabaret and all-round femme power.

Takeover: Wildlife in Strange Waters will feature Fågelle a project from Swedish sound artist Klara Andersson. Woman SRSLY will support wild and wonderful performances that challenge gender representation including Hannah Ballou’s work Shhh. Shhhraises issues that female performers encounter when attempting to continue to perform after becoming mothers, with support from her dancing dads, Jason Piperand Jon Chu. Further featured artists include; Lindy Nsingo with The Lindy Show, Becky Namgauds’ Like Honey with music composed by artist Yael Claire Shahmoon and special guest performance by Lucy McCormick, described in The Scotsman as having ‘the moves of Beyonce, the lungs of Christina Aguilera and the morals of a punk iconoclast’. As always, Woman SRSLY will feature the improvised hype girl stylings of resident movement girl band, The Yonis.

Arrive from 6.30pm for pre-show political playtime and prizes with The Yonis and London Contemporary Dance School’s FemSoc. Prepare to be delighted, amused and inspired in an evening of sex, solidarity and sisterhood. Bring your allies!

This project is supported by Arts Council England, The Place, Dance Research Studio, Muxima, Wac Arts, The Yard and Chisenhale Dance Space
