FEB 2017 – PUSH Lab, Edinburgh Professional Development workshop with international artists exploring gender and sexuality in performance for children and young people. Supported in Scotland by Imaginate and with EU Funding. MORE INFO

Gendersaurus Rex is an artist research project looking into gender, feminism, sexuality, queerness and difference and how these areas intersect with the field of live performance for children. It’s generously supported by Imaginate.

It will be informed by academic theory; books and thinkers; practice-based experiments; lived experiences; surveys of current performance practice; and discussions with artists, children, policy makers, educators, audiences and parents in Scotland and beyond.

It’s really the start of a conversation so I’d love to talk to as many people about this as possible so please get in touch. You can email me here at

I’ll be blogging my thoughts  and posting up relevant videos and articles as the project progresses at the site :   You can be part of the discourse (in 160 characters or less!) on Twitter,@GendersaurusRex
