Handbag at Home

29 Jun

Mountview is thrilled to be working alongside Geraldine Pilgrim Performance Company to present Handbag at Home – a celebratory online participatory performance with wonderful music, dancing and handbags.

 

Geraldine Pilgrim’s Handbag was originally commissioned by Battersea Arts Centre for their Grand Hall in 2008. Since then, Handbag has re-imagined 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 online; with over fifty women dancing round their “handbags at home” to ‘Let’s Dance’ by David Bowie.

Geraldine is Artistic Director of Geraldine Pilgrim Performance Company and is known for her evocative installations and site-specific performances which she has been making for over twenty years. She created and leads the MA in Site-Specific Theatre Practice at Mountview, provided in partnership with Shoreditch Town Hall. The course is the first of its kind in the UK and gives students access to highly specialised training across all elements of site specific practice.
