Full programme details and booking information now announced

Just Like a Woman is a two-day programme of shows, debates, installations and screenings looking at the performance of identity – the ways femininity can be 'performed' and representations of gender can be queered through performance.

With women performing women, women performing men, men performing women, and artists who go beyond the limits of gender altogether, Just Like A Woman features a dazzling array of US and UK artists including Lois Weaver, Narcissister, Dickie Beau, Lucy Hutson, George Chakravarthi, Lucille Power, Harold Offeh, The Girls, The Famous Lauren Barri Holstein and Laura Bridgeman, Julie McNamara and The Drakes.

LADA’s programmes Just Like A Woman and Old Dears are part of the 2015 Sacred season at Chelsea Theatre, London, in November 2015, and the culminating events in LADA’s Restock Reflect Rethink Three project (2013-15) on Live Art and Feminism. 

A New York version of Just Like A Woman will be presented at Abrons Arts Centre from 23 to 25 October 2015, in collaboration with Chelsea Theatre and with the support of British Council.

The first version of Just Like a Woman was presented at City Of Women Festival, Slovenia, in 2013.
