What are the ‘WOWsers?’
Abi Cobb, Lottie Howe, Sophie Ellingham and Maria Sofragiu are part of the Rotherham Children’s Capital of Culture team of trainees, who have been tasked with programming a very special WOWsers performance to engage LGBTQ+ communities and young people attending the festival, and bring to light important issues regarding gender and self-esteem.
The WOWsers Dance
The WOWsers have been working closely with local arts charity and hip-hop theatre group Rationale Arts, to co-curate a special performance that celebrates themes of gender equality and body positivity through dance. Their unique ideas have come through their lived experiences and what issues that affect them as young women.
