A triple bill of solos looking backwards and forwards at award-winning Birmingham choreographer Rosie Kay’s personal experience as a female in dance.
WATCH THE TRAILER
21 years on from her first ever solo show ‘Absolute Solo‘ which she performed in the 1999 Edinburgh Festival, and five years since last appearing on stage herself, Kay returns to performing with a triple bill of solos including a new work ‘Adult Female Dancer’ created in lockdown. Now, as an older dancing female, she has something to say about the female body and the experience of being female and being on stage. Part autobiography, part socio-anthropological study, Kay uses ideas of performance, identity, sex and gender to explore her new dancing spirit.
The triple bill also includes an archive film of the international award-winning ‘Patisserie’ (1999) and Kay’s first public performance of ‘Artemis Clown’ (originally commissioned by Eliot Smith Dance Company).
