Rowena Gander

Rowena is a performer and choreographer based in Liverpool, specialising in Contemporary dance and Pole dance. Since 2015, she has worked with stigmatised objects; the vertical pole and high heels, to tease out how objects can add to or dissolve female subordination. Her consistent questioning has allowed her to generate a body of work that is topical, powerful, unique and, at times, very uncomfortable.

Alongside performance work, Rowena also teaches: “I have a real passion and drive for helping people find confidence in themselves through movement and creativity”.

“I am excited to be a part of MDI talent hub, to learn more about the work of other dance artists who are currently creating work. I hope to connect with those artist and collaborate in some way.”
