Let’s Get On And Do Something About The Gender Debate is an open space event on gender and equality for the independent dance sector. It will be held at Clean Break Theatre Company, in London’s Kentish Town, on January 10, 2016.
“We’ve been talking about gender inequalities in dance for a long time now,” says Chantal Guevara, director of Cloud Dance Festival and organiser of the debate. She points out that most discussion has focused on female choreographers, and argues that little has changed. The new event aims to come up with solutions and actions, finding ways to create change.
The “open space” format means that participants can propose topics and work strategically. Organised in partnership with the Female Choreographers’ Collective, Kaleidoscopic Arts, Technique Exchange and critic Donald Hutera, the event is open to everyone, including those from companies, schools, venues and journalists.
