About the Show
A sweeping, operatic dance of bodies, words and women.
Created and performed by Alice Dixon, Caroline Meaden and William McBride, with an ensemble of collaborating artists, Lady Example undertakes a deranged and exquisite stocktake of our histories and mythologies to propose a litany of new, glorious, shuddering worlds. Combining contemporary dance and theatre, this shimmering and mischievous performance considers the historical and contemporary feminine – on our stages, on our screens and in the performance of everyday life – and explores with poignancy and wit the lady examples that made us, and the lady examples we are making still.
‘A knock-out. So fantastic and interesting.’ Alison Croggon, Witness Performance
