Free talk at the Allport
Co-curator of the Fancy Dress: from tutus to cosplay exhibition, Penny Carey-Wells hosts a talk ‘Fancy Dress: The Brilliant Career of Beattie Jordan – Curator Penny C Wells’ on 23 May from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm at the Allport.
Join Penny to view lavish images from the Tasmanian Archives of Beatrice ‘Beattie’ Jordan (1897–1988), a dancer, choreographer, and owner of the Beattie Jordan Dance School in Hobart, and hear about her passion for dance and performance art.
Beattie inspired a series of luscious and creative costumes for her students over the course of her long career, and shaped Tasmania’s performing arts scene, ballet culture and archival material for future generations.
