Who decides what good behaviour is? What are the rules for twenty-first century women?
The rules we've been taught.
The ones we have inherited.
The ones we always obey.
The ones we pass on.
What are the rules around how things are, or should be done, and are these any use to us today?
Decorum: Dilemmas for twenty-first century women is an intergenerational exploration of rules, conduct and best behaviour, combining storytelling, movement and spoken word, created by students from Mulberry School for Girls, Tower Hamlets and local older women.
Led by our Associate Artist Sue Mayo and dance artist Ellie Sikorski, findings from this cross-age female powerhouse of investigation will be presented at the Women of the World Festival at London Southbank Centre on Sunday 12 March. Join us for this free event at 12.30pm-1pm at Riverside Terrace Café, Level 2, Royal Festival Hall.
This project is in partnership with Mulberry School for Girls with thanks to the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, Clifford Chance Foundation and the Lucas Tooth Trust.
