Performing Gender

Ljubljana training week took place from 6th to 14th November 2017, during the 23rd International festival of contemporary arts - City of Women. It has combined a range of activities, such as practical and theoretical workshops, debates and meetings, encounters with specialists and other artists, as well as intensive dialogue between the five dance makers and the local dramaturg, Tea Hvala.

Thematically, the focus was on different yet intertwined aspects of reproductive freedom: the history of feminist struggles for legal, accessible and safe abortion; new family models and the present-day struggles of lesbian and gay parents; attempts to queer the idea of a family unit; and biotechnological innovations that allow us to think of bodies and reproduction beyond anthropocentricity.

The training week will provide the chosen dance makers with an abundance of raw material for the development of their performative sketches, which were presented during the last day.
