Event description

Description

Hi folks - we have decided to postpone this event until the actual Sensoria Festival in October - provisional date is October 5th. Sorry for any inconvenience but from the feedback we've had that would be better timing for most! We're really looking forward to premiering the SuffraJitsu film later in the year and hope you can join us in autumn.


Throughout 2018 clandestine collaborators D.N.W. (Deeds Not Words) celebrated the Vote100 centenary. D.N.W. (created a string of guerilla art stunts which they filmed to celebrate some of the extraordinary stories of the Suffragettes through a 21st century lens. Surreal, subversive and playful, their films explore these tales through experimental costume, music and creativity.

This year they have created a new film called SuffraJitsu. Come along to the premiere and see how the Suffragettes fought back using martial arts!

The programme throughout the afternoon/evening includes a launch screening of SuffraJitsu + Q&A, the first 3 D.N.W. (Deeds Not Words) films, Girl Gang workshops, martial arts demos plus a screening of Matangi/Maya/Mia.
