Muliebrity - Antique Women

Singer | performer | collaborator

The Antique Women were an interdisciplinary arts collective based in London. Ellie worked alongside 7 other women to create Muliebrety - a show about femininity and it's unrealistic ideals. The Antique women were also the first people to perform Verity Standen's Hug.

Created by a collective of eight female performers, and drawing on their shared and disparate histories and understandings, ‘Muliebrity’ is a work about notions, ideals and experiences of ‘femininity’. This is an intimate, touching and humorous piece exploring bodies, love, motherhood, gender, sex, rules, fear, images, stories and façades. Using a rich blend of artistic forms and a sensory and immersive approach to space and audience-performer relationships, the Antique Women invite you to enter their world.
