ABOUT THIS EVENT

i am not here is designed as an eight-step guide in how to censor women’s writing, which plays out in a boxing ring.

In parts dark, funny, and brutal, this dance-theatre production looks at the subtle and insidious ways in which women’s writing gets flicked to the fringes. Women sit uncomfortably just out of the history of literature, while their male counterparts are accorded the status of geniuses, rebels and folk heroes.

Two women enter the ring. Watching and being watched, they are often at unease with what they must to do to ‘show’ you this guide. Their bodies constantly transform: they play men, women, and creatures. A frying pan is a metaphor for a chalkboard on they write and dance their way to “freedom”, a traditional dance class reveals the impossible ways in which women’s bodies are written about, an insta-poet reads a review about herself in public…

Abundant with movement and haunting music, the play seeks new form, and heightens and complicates an important relationship in the theatre: the one between the audience and the performers.
