In the Dance Debate, Charlotte Vincent, Liz Roche, Liz Aggiss, Sharon Watson, Toni Grove and Lucy Suggate explore what it means to be working as a female choreographer in the UK – their inspirations, collaborations, obstacles and aspirations.

They will debate whether equality of opportunity exists in the dance field and if so why there is this ongoing feeling that women’s dance work doesn’t reach as far or get taken as seriously as that of our male counterparts. Are men fast tracked in their careers or is this a myth? Is women’s work better placed on the small scale and therefore not as visible? How does female-led practice differ from the male approach to making work? How do women measure success? Does the British Dance scene fairly represent female led work and if not, does that matter?

Discussing career trajectories and confidence, gratitude and glass ceilings, family and feminism, this experienced panel discuss their own experiences in and perceptions of the dance world to provoke a debate that highlights where we find ourselves right now and where we might like to be in future.
