50:50 Dance Programming – is it time for quotas in dance?

Thu 10 Jan 2019

Join South East Dance's Artistic Director Cath James for a conversation with a diverse panel of leading dance voices exploring issues facing women working in the UK and International dance sector. How does the gender pay gap, parental leave and inequality of opportunities in favour of male artists affect the perspectives we are presenting to dance audiences. How do we ensure female viewpoints receive equal airtime? Does it matter? Or is it time for 50:50 quota?

The panel includes:

Amy Bell - Independent Dance Artist and Artist Development Manager at The Place
Charlotte Vincent - Choreographer, Director and Mentor; and Artistic Director / CEO of Vincent Dance Theatre
Rob Jones - Independent Producer and Festival Producer, Dance Umbrella
Laura McDermott - Creative Director, Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts
Alexandrina Hemsley – Independent Dance Artist
Es Morgan - Queer Dance Artist, Curator, Writer and Producer

Join us before the discussion at 5pm to find out about Brighton Dome's redevelopment, opening in September 2019; and South East Dance's The Dance Space opening in March 2020 and the shared vision for Brighton as Destination Dance. FREE.
