If you’d like to take part in that performance, contact Louise at the address below.
CALL-OUT FOR NORTHERN IRELAND WOMEN TO PARTICIPATE IN PERFORMANCE OF TRILOGY, 22ND – 24TH OCTOBER 2010
ULSTER BANK BELFAST FESTIVAL AT QUEEN’S
CALLING ALL NORTHERN IRELAND WOMEN!
YOUNG OR OLD/TALL OR SHORT/ATHLETIC OR CURVY!
Hello, my name is Nic Green and I would like the help of lots of women for a performance in Belfast from 22nd – 24th October.
The performance in short, is a celebration of the female form, and of what it means to be an individual, dynamic woman, and to feel empowered and allowed to be that, in a society where the emphasis is often on becoming and looking like something/someone else.
The performance and process is about women coming together, empowered in their own skins, to celebrate the very nature of who they are and all their differences. In the past it has been an incredibly fun and exhilarating performance to do and the process has been a truly transformative and empowering experience! I’m looking for anything over 30 people to make this happen.
So here we go….
The first part of the Trilogy (the performance) ends with a high energy, ensemble naked dance. It is a powerful and emotive moment, presenting the female body in an alternative, empowered way, and celebrating the difference and diversity between us.
It is open to all levels of fitness and ability, and in the past we’ve had women from all walks of life, all shapes and sizes, all abilities, ages and backgrounds and it has been amazing.
Of course I realise it’s a big challenge (for many of us) to do a performance with no clothes on, and I know that the prospect of this will make a lot of people feel nervous however I can promise to approach this in the most sensitive way I know how, and of course no one at any point needs to do anything they do not feel comfortable with.
If you come to the first session (which we will do fully clothed!) and decide you don’t want to come back that is of course absolutely fine and we will fully understand. However if you feel at all interested I would urge you to come along and see what you think and how you feel.
On the other hand, if you feel completely up for a challenge and want to do something different, meet new people and make new friends in a new women’s community, make a point or even just do some dancing for fun-brilliant! ALL ARE WELCOME!
Here are the dates – all will be in Belfast. It’s good if you can make them all, but if you can’t and you really want to do it, please do let us know and I’m sure we can work something out.
Mon 18 6.00pm – 9.00pm
Tues 19 6.00pm – 9.00pm
Wed 20 6.00pm – 9.00pm
Thurs 21 6.00pm – 9.00pm
Friday 22nd – Sunday 24th: PERFORMANCE 7.30pm – 10.30pm
That’s four rehearsals and three performances.
If you are at all interested, please e-mail Louise Brodie firstname.lastname@example.org She will give you any further necessary details, however if you are still not sure and you want to talk to me, you can get my number/email address from her. Please do not hesitate to call me!
Thank-You for reading. I hope to hear from many of you in the near future.
