Past eventRambert Revealed: how do we level the playing field for female choreographers? SOLD OUT
The latest in our series of industry-focused Rambert Debates looks at the issue of women working as choreographers.
The number of women entering vocational training for the dance profession vastly outnumbers that of men, yet most lists of “established” or “renowned” choreographers show a predominance of men, and the repertoires of the world’s most celebrated dance companies is overwhelming “man”-made. It seems that some of the same institutional, historic or societal obstacles that impede opportunities for women in other industries also apply in dance (and maybe dance has specific issues of its own).
Judith Mackrell, dance critic for The Guardian, chairs a panel discussion looking at one can be done to change this state of affairs, and whether the dance industry is able to level the playing field for female choregraphers.
A panel of eminent dance makers and programmers join Judith to give their views on the debate, including Tamsin Fitzgerald, Brendan Keaney, Shobana Jeyasingh, Patricia Okenwa, Peggy Olislaegers, Rupert Thomson, Didy Veldman, and Charlotte Vincent.
This event is free but capacity is limited, so advance booking is recommended.
