From the catwalks of Paris, to the office boardroom, FEMME is a new solo theatrical dance work by choreographer/performer, Erin Fowler. Drawing on her experiences as a fashion model and business woman, FEMME is one woman's search for self within the cacophony of gender and sexual conditioning that surrounds us.

FEMME explores concepts of femininity and female sexuality, the female body, the gender roles we conform to, or break against, and what it means to be powerful in a largely masculine dominant culture.

Performed for all in the Mill’s intimate Breakout Space, Erin tries on different ideas of femininity. What does it take to stop performing and be true to yourself?

Reviews

“It is so easy for Dance to get lost in the Adelaide Fringe and finding gems like this is not easy. ”
Louise Pascale, Lady Stringer by Louise Pascale

“Please go to see this work. Exhort your friends to go, particularly your male friends, then TALK to each other about the quandaries raised.”
Lisa Lanzi, Theatre Travels

“Femme is a cerebral work, very well designed, and very worthwhile.”
