THE SINGULAR VOICE OF WOMAN celebrates the power of the solo voice as well as the strength of revolutionary spirit that connects dance artists regardless of time and place. This show features exceptional solos from women artists linking the early American pioneers to contemporary dancers.

THE SINGULAR VOICE OF WOMAN premiered in 1997 at The Place Theatre in London featuring choreography of the American pioneers: Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey, and Eleanor King, as well as works by Argentinean choreographer Susanna Tambutti, and UK contemporary dance and performance pioneer, Jacky Lansley. The concert was performed to critical acclaim by Christine Jowers with guest artists Janet Eilber (Martha Graham Co.), Jacky Lansley, and Lesley Main (UK -Doris Humphrey).

In 2010, at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival THE SINGULAR VOICE OF WOMAN was presented as a solo concert with film excerpts, featuring American choreography from 1923 to the present day. “Tribute” a work by choreographer Rebecca Rice, commemorating her families four-generation Denishawn lineage, was made specifically for Christine Jowers to premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.


“Christine Jowers is not only a remarkable performer, but an important dance historian. In the Singular Voice of Woman, her programme of female solo works from Martha Graham to the present day, she sheds fascinating light on little known dances and artists as well as celebrating the pioneering sister hood of women choreographers.”

“Christine Jowers wonderfully captured the spirit and verve of the evocative dance”
