2016 VDT Ella Mesma

Ella Mesma Company



In 2015/16 Charlotte mentored dancer / choreographer Ella Mesma as part of via ADAD’s Trailblazers Mentoring scheme and The Bench Mentoring Programme, supporting the research phase of her new trio LADYLIKE.

Wonder-woman? Wild woman? Wicked-Witch? LADYLIKE is a celebration of the female, speaking out against violence and asking questions about femininity.

LADYLIKE explores sisterhood, sanity and sexuality through the medium of Latin Dance Theatre and Breaking.

The piece toured in 2016. The research phase was supported using public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England and supported by Yorkshire Dance through its Sketch programme for dance makers with a commitment to working in Yorkshire and the North of England. Mentoring and Additional Direction from Charlotte Vincent was supported through The BENCH.
