Synopsis


Are you a chicken or are you a heroine?


In the wake of #MeToo comes a ceremonious undressing of four timeless and universal stories.


Fusing dynamic hip hop with the tempestuous and sexually charged Rumba, Ladylike is a superheroine's journey that takes a fierce, frank and funny look at the potential and the limitations of gender roles.


Themed around the slang word for woman as 'chick' or 'hen', and based on interviews with young women and female Hip Hop and Latin dancers, Ella Mesma Company have created a new ritual for women to explore consent and the masks we wear, purge cliches and celebrate sisterhood.
