What challenges do senior female choreographers face? This conversation between choreographic artists aims to celebrate older women working in dance and introduce audiences to the process, practice and achievements of artists, encouraging different ways of looking at the creative work they produce.
Julie-Anne Long (artist-scholar and Senior Lecturer in Dance and Performance at Macquarie University) brings together a group of experienced women working in dance to share ideas, concerns and ways of dancing with other senior creatives and those interested in artists’ process. There will be three events.
- Two invited group meetings

Co-presented with Sydney Festival, the first public event Saturday 19 January at 3pm at Gaden Centre & Café. There will be a second event 17 March at 4pm at Drill Hall as part of March Dance and the third 14 April, time and date TBC.
