Full programme details now announced

 

Old Dears is a two day programme on the radical, influential and fiercely feminist practices of an older generation of artists who embody the lived realities of feminist histories and whose work continues to contribute to discourses around gender politics. Old Dears features performances, screenings, and debates with artists including Liz Aggiss, Rocio Boliver, Marcia Farquhar and Anne Bean.

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.

The first version of Old Dears was presented at Camden People Theatre’s Calm Down Dear Festival in 2014.
