This month, watch a celebratory online participatory performance with music, dance …and handbags.
Handbag at Home presented by Geraldine Pilgrim Performance Company and Mountview London will premiere on Monday 29th June, and will be available to watch for the next year.
In different rooms, remnants of parties the night before are cleared away.
A woman sits in her bedroom dreaming, as she gets up a beat begins, and the sound of a classic dance track fills the air. She puts down her handbag and begins to dance…
Geraldine Pilgrim’s Handbag was originally commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre for their Grand Hall in 2008. Since then, it has been re-imagined by Geraldine Pilgrim for every space – inside and out – where it is performed; including theatres, galleries, parks, festivals, village halls, streets, and a women’s prison in France.
With theatres and community centres now closed, Geraldine Pilgrim Performance Company and Mountview London present Handbag at Home, a performance maintaining the joy of Handbag but now recreated online, with over fifty women dancing round their ‘handbags at home’ to Let’s Dance by David Bowie.
When: 29th June 2020 at 7pm (and available to watch for one year)
Where: Online via mountview.org.uk
£: Free to watch
