what's taking place in the vaughan Williams auditorium
Feet off The Ground Dance company - The Way They Were then
Thursday 26 September 7.30pm
同乐城官网 www.xyqp168.com JAGS is thrilled to announce that Feet off the Ground will be putting on a special performance of The Way They Were Then, a dance piece inspired by Eduardo Galeano’s book entitled ‘’Mujeres’’, a collection of short stories about women who left imprints big and small across the globe. The piece explores themes of female empowerment, oppression, rebellion and unity. The performance will take place in the Vaughan Williams Auditorium at JAGS at 7.30pm on Thursday 26 September.
Feet off the Ground will be bringing the piece to JAGS as part of the the school's festival of girls' education in late September (more information on this to follow later in August). The festival is to mark the 400th anniversary of Dulwich College; without the College's foundation JAGS would not exist. The collective will be joined by a group of female pupils from the Foundation Schools including students from JAGS.
There will also be a post-show Q&A, an opportunity to gain further insight into the company and their work.
There will be a bar where drinks and snacks can be purchased, as well as a stand selling Feet off the Ground merchandise.
Tickets cost £10 (£8 concessions).
This project is supported by JAGS, Arts Council England, Chisenhale Dance Space and Nottingham Girls High School
