CREATING SOUND-LED, FEMINIST PERFORMANCE

Julie Rose Bower is a University of Oxford linguist and a Lecoq-trained theatremaker. Her performances have been to venues across the UK including Barbican, ICA, Tate Modern, Science Museum, West Yorkshire Playhouse, Northern Stage, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Toynbee Studios, Fierce Festival, and Jackson's Lane. Collaborators include Geraldine Pilgrim, Lundahl and Seitl, Enda Walsh, Chroma, Thomas Hicks, Late Night Library Club and Secret Cinema. Her writing has been published by McSweeneys, Henningham Family Press and One Beat Zines. She is currently a PhD candidate in the Department of English and Drama at Queen Mary University of London researching the intersection between sound design and feminism.

Julie Rose’s performances take place in theatres, music venues and cinemas. Both her touring work and her site-specific practice explore the body as mise en scene and encourage heightened awareness. She uses experimental music technologies to innovate narrative form and combines this a with a projection practice to work between live and mediated space. Fragments of sound and image are deployed in live collages that create uncanny meanings and unexpected humour.
