You will have heard of the Suffragettes but do you know about the astonishing work of the suffragists? We want to share the legwork of these thousands of women through our latest project.
We're so excited about the work of the suffragists beginning to be recognised, particularly the stunning new statue of Millicent Fawcett at houses of Parliament, Jenny is with her below.
Walking Watling Street explores the 1913 NUWSS pilgrimage in particular the North Western Route from Carlisle to London. The choreography explores the determination, commitment and devotion to the cause that the female suffragists demonstrated through walking.
They walked through many Northern Towns and walked over 350 miles.
We are hoping to take this performance to Lakes Alive Festival and work alongside 40 women from across the entirety of Cumbria, so ladies if you fancy donning your dancing shoes and taking part in the performances please do get in touch.
We're currently supported by Lakes Alive Festival and the Brewery Arts Centre in Kendal but we need this final amount for the performances to take place and to share this extremely important story.
We just want to say a huge thank you from the whole team here at AbouTime Dance Company, we couldn't do what we do without your participation as audience and performers!
