Bernie Grant Arts Centre presents The Gathering

Gather with some of the world’s most unique female artists and share the secret…

Autobiography and personal memory runs strong through women’s storytelling. Understanding the world from the inside out, lends a particular voice to the tales that are passed on and the perspectives revealed. This weekend festival of strange revelations, physical protestations, secrets revealed and declarations bellowed, brings together an international line-up of distinctive female voices in music, live art, visual art, spoken word, and literature for cross cultural explorations and mind body expansion.

With many free events, this exclusive weekend will explore the nature of our secrets, memories and bodies through discussions, performances, cabarets, readings, exhibitions, dance and fashion. From the spoken word versatility of Jean Binta Breeze, Lyric L and Aoife Mannix, to physical examinations by live artist Anna Furse and celebrated vaudevillian gender-bender Peggy Shaw, personal revelations by literary survivor Cupcake Brown and fashion choreography by Parisians Bezemymailan, this is a chance to be let in on the secret.

For the young and curious why not try our Show and Tell afternoon. You could delve deeper with Memories, Bodies & Landscapes, our discussion forum with some of the world’s leading female artists. Or pop along to our Pot Luck Party hosted by the original failed diva Marcia Brown (played by comedienne Tameka Empson) – just don’t forget to bring her a present!

I keep finding the future inside of me
I can hear it really loud
Coming like a field of windmills, or a hive of bees.
Peggy Shaw
