Rather than performing though, she will be taking 'They Never Clothed', a pop-up exhibition based on her research into the media representation of the women who worked at Soho's famous Windmill Theatre (made famous in the 2005 film Mrs Henderson Presents) and hosting a panel discussion on the politics of female performance featuring key scholars and some of the biggest names in British burlesque. Both will be open to the public and the discussion event will also be available as a podcast.
Festival organisers Heidi Bang Tidy and Lady Wildflower said ‘We’ve never had a panel discussion before. We are really looking forward to it!’ Dr Wright said ‘I’m really excited. I love working with the public. I love to hear a range of perspectives.’
