The Bench Event
The BENCH is a three year programme hosted by 2FACED Dance that has been developed in direct response to serious concerns about the lack of equality currently faced by female choreographers within the contemporary dance sector. The BENCH offers female choreographers working within the UK the opportunity to participate in a 9 month programme of training, discussion, debate and mentoring, all within a bespoke and creative framework.
Mentors leading this year’s programme are: TAMSIN FITZGERALD, KATE FLATT, ROSIE KAY, LIV LORENT, SHARON WATSON and CHARLOTTE VINCENT.
These five mentors alongside Keynote Speaker (award-winning playwright, author, broadcaster and critic) Bonnie Greer OBE are talking at The BENCH Event in Birmingham on May 17, 2016.
THE BENCH FELLOWS 2015-16 ARE:
JENNIFER ESSEX, REBECCA EVANS, LEE GRIFFITHS, RACHEL ERDOS, ELLA MESMA
