Barely Visible

by Rowena Gander

Available to watch until the 31st July


Barely Visible is an empowering physical solo performance that brings focus to common issues that queer women face, including sexualisation, (fe)male gaze and what it really feels like to live in the shadows.

Incorporating the use of a 100-kilo vertical pole, acclaimed dance theatre artist, Rowena Gander, explores control and visibility in this moving and powerful semi-autobiographical performance.
