Homemakers: Siege – Part 1 with HOME

Siege – Part 1 at HOME Manchester, Manchester and online, 18 May–31 December 2020, free entry - Visit now

Curated by Vici Wreford-Sinnott, Siege is presented in two parts. Siege – Part 1 is entitled ‘The Wrong Woman Discussions’ and is a series of themed discussions between disabled women performance makers. The discussions are all available to watch online from your own home.

‘The Wrong Woman Discussions’ sees disabled performance makers come together – Bea Webster, Melissa Johns, Julie McNamara and Tammy Reynolds – to talk about the narratives attached to disabled women, and to discuss transgressive women – women who break through boundaries, resist definition and explode stereotypes through their work.

Siege sees these five amazing disabled performance makers, reflecting a broad range of practices from live art, the TV industry, contemporary new writing for theatre, and performance work from drag to the RSC, present a sequence of themed nitty-gritty punch-packed discussions.

This Homemakers‘ commission, by ARC Stockton in partnership with HOME Manchester, is made up of two parts – the first, Siege – Part 1, is available online now and part 2 can be accessed from 4 June.

BSL interpretation is provided by Sue Lee.
