Battersea Arts Centre has announced an autumn season of inspiring female-led theatre events.

OverCome, a collection of shows about being bold and working towards a unified future, will be shown at the Lavender Hill venue in October and November.

The programme features work from artists including Figs in Wigs with Little Wimmin, Heather Agyepong’s new solo work, The Body Remembers and Jennifer Jackson’s Endurance.

Malú Ansaldo, a director at Battersea Arts Centre, said:

“If we are to OVERCOME this global challenge collectively, we need everyone on board. This incredible array of work reflects on our unique ability to power through, learn, grow and expand in the face of uncertainty, challenges and hardship. I am excited about this season, and even more so to see how art can act as a catalyst for real change in our lives. We need change. We can be that change.

Tarek Iskander, CEO of Battersea Arts Centre, added:  

Everyone at BAC has a deep understanding of how groundbreaking arts and culture can spark lasting, positive change in our many communities – because we see this every day. So BAC has never missed a season throughout this pandemic. The remarkable collection of work in our latest, the OverCome season, insists on finding new ways for us all to connect and shape a better future.”
