What you’ll do

Listen to the F*Choir perform ‘We Want Our Bodies Back’ by Jenny Moore.

You can learn the song in a singing workshop in the Reading Room with warm-ups and singing exercises. F*Choir don’t use sheet music but notate their songs in a unique way, so you’ll have the opportunity to make suggestions and shape the song. Sign up for a ticket for this workshop below.

Enjoy the transformed song during the second performance at 20:30. If you took part in the workshop then you can choose to join in with the singing.

About your performers


F*Choir is a collective, intersectional feminist choir. They consider the voice as a way of creating resistance and the body as a living archive of the songs they sing together.
