Women’s Writing for Performance: Process and Practice

This three-day symposium represents the culmination of an AHRC funded research project: Women’s Writing for Performance. Over the last three years it has initiated workshops and events led by contemporary artists to investigate how women ‘write’ themselves into performance through text, body, space or technology.

Curated by Elaine Aston and Geraldine Harris, the symposium will bring together an exciting range of practitioners and scholars, provisionally including Bobby Baker, Sue-Ellen Case, Lenora Champagne, Anna Furse, Lynette Goddard, Dee Heddon, Kazuko Hohki, Janelle Reinelt, SuAndi, Lois Weaver and Marisa Carnesky.

Symposium Special Events

Marisa Carnesky will lead a one-day practical workshop exploring devised performance using popular entertainment forms on Thursday 27 April.

Split Britches perform their legendary performance Dress Suits To Hire on Saturday 29 April at 8pm.
