International Women’s Day 2020 at HOME

Celebrate International Women’s Day at HOME with film screenings, gallery tours, workshops and a theatre show that gives a ferociously feminist twist to the classic take of Little Women.

In the theatre, Figs in Wigs present a live art feminist adaptation of Louisa May Alcott’s classic novel Little Women. Blurring the boundaries of live art, music, theatre, comedy and dance examines how Little Wimmin we think about the past, what’s wrong with the present, and what we’re going to do about the future – if there even is one.

As part of the ¡Viva! Spanish and Latin American Festival there will be a specially curated shorts programme, Mujeres, featuring five short films made by contemporary Spanish female filmmakers curated by the Edinburgh-based Spanish film experts CinemaAttic. There are also ¡Viva! films by two more female directors, Peruvian director Melina León (Canción sin nombre) and Argentinian director Sabrina Blanco (La Botera).

And in the gallery, award-winning artist, activist and Artistic Director of Trans Creative Kate O’Donnell will be giving a special tour of the Manchester Open Exhibition searching out the trans narratives in the work.

For budding producers, London-based Dutch producer, writer, multi-instrumentalist & engineer Gabi ‘GG’ Stok will be running a Women in Music: Production and Beat-Making Workshop 101 explaining how to get started producing in Logic Pro X.
