    Auslan-interpreted performance 11 May 7.30pm

Lady Example is a dance – of bodies, words, and women.

Created and performed by Alice Dixon, Caroline Meaden and William McBride, with an ensemble of 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, text and theatre, this tender and sly performance considers the historical and contemporary feminine – on our stages, on our screens, and in the performance of everyday life – looking at the lady examples that made us, and the lady examples we are making still.
