'Girls will be boys and boys will be girls, It's a mixed up muddled up shook up world'
-- Lola, The Kinks
Abrons joined with London’s Live Art Development Agency (LADA) and Chelsea Theatre to offer Just Like a Woman, a two-day program of shows, debates, lectures, installations and screenings looking at the performance of identity – the ways femininity can be 'performed' and representations of gender can be queered through performance.
With women performing women, women performing men, men performing women, and artists who go beyond the limits of gender altogether, Just Like A Woman featured an array of US and UK artists including Lois Weaver, Peggy Shaw, CHRISTEENE, Narcissister, Kris Grey, Dickie Beau, Lucy Hutson, George Chakravarthi, Harold Offeh, Lucy McCormick, The Girls and The Famous Lauren Barri Holstein.
Just Like A Woman was part of the Live Art Development Agency’s Restock, Rethink, Reflect initiative on Live Art and Feminism, and followed their hugely successful Access All Areas event on Live Art and Disability at Abrons in 2014.
