Just Like A Woman: NYC and London Editions - Documentation
Abrons Art Centre, New York City, October 2015
Chelsea Theatre, London, November 2015
Two programmes of shows, talks, installations, and screenings on the ways femininity can be 'performed' and representations of gender can be queered through performance. Part of LADA’s Restock, Rethink, Reflect Three project on Live Art & Feminism.
With women performing women, women performing men, men performing women, and artists going beyond the limits of gender altogether, JLAW featured a dazzling array of US and UK artists including Lois Weaver, Peggy Shaw, Narcissister, CHRISTEENE, George Chakravarthi, Dickie Beau, Lucy Hutson, Harold Offeh, Laura Bridgeman and The Drakes, Nando Messias, The Girls, Kris Grey, The Famous Lauren Barri Holstein and many more.
“LADA’s Just Like a Woman program at Abrons Arts Center drew together an intense weekend community of radically innovative artists and up-for-it audiences hungry for critical convening around a superbly curated, topical program. Stunning, challenging international work and stimulating discussions are a hallmark of LADA’s programming and no one does it like this in NYC.” - Salette Gressett, British Council, USA
