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

Inspired by #metoo and #timesup movement, Ladylike is a ceremonious undressing of timeless and universal stories of four women. Using Afro Cuban and Rocking and themed around the slang word for woman as ‘chick’ or ‘hen’, Ladylike is a celebration of wonderful women and a provocative protest at sexual violence, sexism, gender stereotypes and the masks we wear. Absurd, funny and provocative, this work contains some disturbing scenes of a sexual nature.
