That Dress!
That Dress! joined Our Tower Hamlets1 month ago

Women in society can be pecieved in specific ways and assumptions made about them based on how they dress. That Dress!, is a project that will explore, deconstruct and teach skills that enable women to empower themselves through arts as a educative and transformative tool. Through pop up performances and Applied theatre, fashion/dressmaking workshops, Off The Wall Players will work with women from Aldgate, Bow, Poplar and Peckham to examine how codes of dress can effect womens life. We will deliver pop up performances, fashion and drama workshops in fun, relaxed spaces in which women will feel free to share their experiences of clothes, fashion and how that has shaped them. These womens experiences will be recorded, collated and archived. Off The Wall Players will use the experiences, and dresses made in workshops to create an interactive Forum theatre piece; that will be used to open a dialogue where the actors and audience can discuss women, fashion and how they can be perceived.
