Tweets & Facebook messages

From 1st to 7th of March we are collecting your International Women’s Day messages/ slogans/ wishes to women of the world and each other . You can write a personal thought, a quote, a memory, an anecdote,a verse, a word… We’ll turn each message into a ‘placard’ and exhibit it with your Twitter / FB name, on the 8th of March during our live performance at the Construction gallery. Your messages will form a set design for Suffragette Slet 2012 – so please get tweeting – let’s make something powerful together! 

Please include the name of the person if you’re quoting / citing .   

Thank you!

If you need some extra inspiration, this year’s official IWD theme is

CONNECTING GIRLS, INSPIRING FUTURES

Suffragette Yoga postures

 

This week, in a build up to the live art finale in celebration of the 101st International Women’s Day at the Construction Gallery on the 8th of March, Performance Klub Fiskulturnik will  be posting Suffragette Yoga postures for viewers to practice and master.

Therefore sisters and brothers, it is time to warm up and start flexing those social muscles that will allow you to increase personal flexibility and raise the awareness of ‘The Woman Question’ .

INSTRUCTIONS:

Hold each posture for 30 to 60 seconds.

Remember to breathe.

Always repeat the posture to the other side (if it applies).

Practice postures daily.

Attend the live event on the 8th of March .

Join us in a collective Suffragette Yoga exercise.

 Long live the International Women’s Day!

Drawing on the aesthetic of suffragettes, socialist female workers, revolutionary monuments, mass calisthenics and Agit-prop the piece will be directed and co-ordinated via social media, culminating in a live performance.
