FEMME5
A collaborative performance initiated by Helen Pridmore with Johanna Bundon, Astrid Lloyd, Robin Poitras and Krista Solheim. FEMME5 is a collaborative project borne of five performing women, inspired by sound, movement, matter and improvisation. For the Re: Celebrating the Body exhibition and Stream of Dance Festival, FEMME5 engages with Astrid Lloyd's installation, Hammock (2015) in a series of interwoven sketches with movement improvisation and text, that acknowledges the women and feminine forces that have shaped our lives.
