This is a feminist collective.
It is 2015 and we are back, five years of feminism since Stirred began in 2010…Stirred Bodies will be at The Three Minute Theatre, on Monday 23rd February at 7.30pm. You can find directions here and the special guests’ bio’s here.
Stirred Poetry is a feminist, pro-people poetry event that has been supporting women and everyone for five years. On the spot poetry tasks, special guests and ridiculousness abound.
We are also channelling five years of experiences at this point of running a self declared feminist performance space, including the aggressive reactions and the narrow vision of what this can mean. We are more ready than ever to confront this and this theme of bodies is the beginning of us reclaiming our own ground.
As a commenter said, we are not brains in jars; our lived experience of having a body effects us deeply.
We have a theme of bodies for Stirred this February.
Open mic spaces have now been filled! But please get in touch if you are interested at performing at another Stirred, we have several dates upcoming. Message firstname.lastname@example.org for more info. Open mic at Stirred is an inclusive welcoming space to try out new work or work in development, work in collaboration or showcase your practised piece.
We are also running two workshops on this theme split into:
Body image on Wednesday 14th Jan
Corporeal beings on Wednesday 18th February
£1/2 donations welcomed at all events.
