Ella Mesma Company makes dance theatre that draws upon Afro-Latin, Breaking, Aerial and Contemporary dance styles.

In the wake of #MeToo comes a funny and furious show from Ella Mesma Company.

Fusing dynamic hip hop with the tempestuous and sexually charged Rumba, LADYLIKE is a new piece of dance theatre which takes a fierce, frank and funny look at the potential and the limitations of gender roles in today’s society. Based on interviews with young women and hip hop and Latin dancers, Ella Mesma Company have created a new ritual for women to explore pleasure, consent, and gender roles - purging clichés and celebrating sisterhood.

Get along to Dance City early as DJ Selectorchico TM will be playing Latin and Hip Hop in the social space from 6pm, there will be an exhibition of artwork by Hugo Canuto, and the chance to play Chicken Charades!

For those that get a taste for Latin moves, there is a Roots of Rumba party at Kommunity on Friday 13 July, with a free and fun dance class at 9pm by Ella Mesma.
