LAMINA

DSC07439.jpg

LAMINA, an electrifying contemporary dance double bill by VOiiiD Collective, pulses with energy as it unveils the layers of societal norms, diving headfirst into the patriarchy. Conceptualised and choreographed by Jade Brider, LAMINA fearlessly dismantles anything aiming to make female-identifying bodies more palatable. It lays bare the falsehoods we cloak ourselves in and courageously questions the status quo, advocating for authenticity over conformity.

 

Choreographer: Jade Brider

Dancers: Soleil Harvey, Nadia Milford, Asher Bowen-Saunders, Georgia Pierce and Bella Hood.

Music: Bcharre, Matthew French, Nick Cave, Gabriel Faure, and T-shirts & Sweats.

 

The creation of Lamina is supported by Studio1, Arts Coast, Phluxus2 Dance Collective, LJ Projects, Mad Dance House, House Conspiracy and Promenade Dance Studios.
