It’s the final screening and live performance of the tour in the beautiful Tyneside Cinema. The Electra screen will be alive with the fast and furious soundtrack performed live by The Badwills. And the brilliant archive activists Invisible Women will be presenting two more films of pioneering female filmmakers from the archives. Everyone is welcome for this grand tour finale in the Toon!
On the weekend of International Women’s Day, Lyth Arts Centre hosts Silent Divas: ASSUNTA SPINA. Reinvigorated after their break for the Winter, The Badwills will get you warmed up with some wild and furious dancing after the feature film.
The Badwills head up the road and cross the Pentland Firth to Orkney and Stromness - the home of West Side Cinema where audiences enjoy the edge of world cinema in a relaxed and social atmosphere. This event will be supported by readings from local women writers from Orkney Voices to celebrate International Women’s Day.
It’s bring your own bottle in Stromness Town Hall as the dancefloor is cleared after the feature film for The Badwills to let loose with their furious dance tunes. Wear red for passion and tambourines at the ready!
Proud to be participating in Dundee Women’s Festival, Silent Divas: ASSUNTA SPINA connects with the Feastival’s theme of ‘Hear Women’s Voices’. The Invisible Women team will be back for the DCA show with a selection of short films from the archive made by overlooked female filmmakers to complement Francesca Bertini starring and co-directing ASSUNTA SPINA (1915).
The tour starts up again at Scotland’s largest combined arts organisation, perfect for the Silent Divas mix of big screen cinema with live music. Accompanying ASSUNTA SPINA will be a selection of short films specially programmed by archive activists Invisible Women (aka Camilla Baier and Rachel Pronger).
