Moving Memory’s work is informed by older women’s experiences - issues of sexism, ageism & the marginalisation of older women continually recur. The Devil’s Doorbell will involve Moving Memory’s core company & 2 public groups in a creative conversation around the intimate, profound, often submerged, connections & ties that women are constantly building & holding in their bodies, throughout their lives. The goal is a piece which rewrites anatomy, places the power of a woman’s body centre-stage & has the potential to engage, surprise & defy the expectations of audiences & communities in theatre & non-theatre spaces and we would love you to be part of this.

We are looking for up to 15 people who would be interested in meeting Moving Memory Dance Theatre’s company, being introduced to our style and practice, and getting a flavour of The Devil’s Doorbell.

Our Creative Director, Sian Stevenson and Core performance company (7 women aged between 52-90) will be leading the workshop and we can guarantee it will be an entertaining and very different 2 hours. Alongside introducing the company’s work and the themes of this piece, we will be sharing some snippets of what has been devised so far and inviting participants into the practical work making some choreography together. 

We hope we can make a lasting connection with the group leading to the creation of a curtain raiser where possible, for the full show later in the year.

Tom, one of our performers and performance assistants recently said:

" MM are an exceptional bunch of people that the world needs in inspiring intergenerational unity and in challenging social norms and stereotypes. It was hundred percent inspiring for me to see them moving freely, dancing elegantly, helping one another to do so, and pushing themselves to the limits. I have witnessed the practical of 'If I do it, you can do it' motivational attitude here presenting their moving dances to public... I have been doing performances since I was a child with various international and intergenerational performance companies and MM is one of my most favourite tribes!"
