Full programme details now announced

“Girls will be boys and boys will be girls. It’s a mixed up muddled up shook up world.” Lola, The Kinks

LADA returns to New York, in partnership with Chelsea Theatre to present a three-day programme of shows, debates, lectures, installations, book launches, 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, Peggy Shaw, CHRISTEENE, Narcissister, Kris Grey, Dickie Beau, Lucy Hutson, George Chakravarthi, Harold Offeh, Laura Bridgeman and The Drakes, The Girls, and The Famous Lauren Barri Holstein.

Just Like A Woman was first presented at City of Women Festival, Slovenia in 2013 and is part of LADA’s Restock, Rethink, Reflect initiative on Live Art and Feminism. Just Like A Woman in NYC follows LADA’s successful Access All Areas event on Live Art and Disability at Abrons in 2014.

Generously supported by the British Council.

A London version of Just Like A Woman will be presented at Chelsea Theatre on 13 and 14 November 2015.
