IETM Hull 2019 Artistic Programme:

Are you a chicken or are you a heroine? In the wake of #MeToo comes a funny and furious show from Ella Mesma Company.

Fusing dynamic hip hop with the tempestuous and sexually charged Rumba, Ladylike is a new piece of dance theatre which takes a fierce, frank and funny look at the potential and the limitations of gender roles in today’s society.

Based on interviews with young women and female hip hop and Latin dancers, Ella Mesma Company has created a new ritual for women to explore pleasure, consent, and gender roles – purging cliches and celebrating sisterhood.
