Performing Gender. Research Sharing



Performing Gender. Research Sharing

Performance featuring five dance makers including Roberta Racis
In collaboration with Yorkshire Dance

Performing Gender – Dance makes differences is a capacity building programme aimed at enabling a new generation of European dance artists and professionals to develop a new form of narrative for LGBTI identities. Performing Gender wants to drive and develop a European dialogue on these themes. Dance, naturally focusing its research on body, is the perfect artistic language to investigate and shape gender expressions.

After Ljubljana and Bologna, the third research sharing will take place in Leeds: each Dance Maker will present a sketch of their work, representing a richness of ideas, approaches and enquiry into gender. The spectators are invited to share their perspectives at the end of the performances: Peggy Olislaegers will facilitate a post-show discussion.


Roberta Racis (Cagliari, 1990) has been a member of the Italian company Balletto di Roma since 2015, dancing in productions by choreographers including Alessandro Sciarroni, Chris Haring, Itamar Serussi Sahar, Paolo Mangiola, Francesca Pennini, Chiara Frigo and Giorgia Nardin. For Balletto di Roma she choreographed the solo Borders, premiered in 2017 in Fabbrica Europa Dance Festival, and is dance maker for Danzare la performance in MAXXI museum in Rome and for the project Reveals in the Palazzo Grassi museum in Venice for the Punta della Dogana / Set Up festival.

Peggy Olislaegers has worked as Rambert’s Artistic Associate since 2015. As one of the leading independent dance dramaturges in Europe, Peggy Olislaegers provides artistic and strategic advice for both choreographers and institutions in the performing arts. In addition to Rambert, she has worked with Dutch National Ballet (Netherlands), Balletto di Roma (Italy), The Place (UK), Ugo Dehaes (Belgium) and Nanine Linning (Germany), among others. She co-initiated the European project Act Your Age, and is one of the leading mentors of the European projects Performing Gender and Pivot Dance.
