parler femme, a Tala Lee-Turton Production, 16th Nov at Elsecar Ironworks

parler femme is a dance-based triple bill celebrating innovative and inspiring stories about women. Experienced through live performance, screen and immersive technologies, the work is the latest from South Yorkshire’s Tala Lee-Turton Productions.

This is the first time that a professional dance production is being staged at Elsecar Heritage Centre and the first time Tala will perform with her production company in her home town of Barnsley.

Act I, The Subject is Speaking, is a compilation of award-winning short dance films telling the stories of different lived experiences from female filmmakers.

Act II marks the premiere of multi-layered dance and music duet, Here Lies, a magic realist tale about two estranged sisters, reconnecting after the death of their Grandmother.

Act III is audience favourite, No Time Like The Present, with a cast of five dancers performing to a synth-pop score, exploring power and femininity.

A Q&A with the creative team will follow the performance.
