The Ballet Independents' Group will be holding its next discussion forum:<P><B>Sunley Pavilion, Level 3, <BR>Royal Festival Hall<BR>7-9pm, Friday 22nd March, 2002</B><P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR><B>Invisible Women </B><P>Women dominate the world of ballet education and independent practice; women established the balelt institutions in this country. Why then, are so few women visible at the level of artistice conception, management and policy today? At the average ballet summer school, there will be a handful of boys to every hundred girls; a trawl through the 30 odd internationally renowned ballet companies reveals that less than a handful are run by women. What happens to women's careers en route?<P><B>Invisible Women</B>looks at what it is to be a woman in ballet - the opportunities and roles in the workplace and representation on the stage. How does the particular sub culture of the classical ballet world shape women's roles and how different is the experience of women in 'modern' dance? How are women represented on stage; who constructs these representations? Who are the role models for a contemporary generation of ballet dancers? What can be learnt from history and how may women influence what lies ahead?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Guest speakers:<P><B>Cathy Marston</B><BR>independent choreographer/dancer<P><B>Zenaida Yanowsky</B><BR>Royal Ballet Principal<P>(Both are establishing their voices as individual artists)<P><B>Alexandra Carter</B><BR>author, scholar and Reader in Dance Studies at Middlesex University.<P>(Ms Carter talks from her perspective as a feminist historian with a scholarly interest in ballet.)<P>The debate is free of charge and there is no need to book. Just turn up.<P><p>[This message has been edited by Emma Pegler (edited March 03, 2002).]
