Founded in New York in 1980, Split Britches: Lois Weaver, Peggy Shaw, and Deb Margolin, has continued for 40 years with the performance work of Lois Weaver and Peggy Shaw, who have been in residence with Metal in Peterborough during November 2019. Since it’s inception, Split Britches have been committed to working with women, women of color, and LGBTQ+ communities. More recently their work has been centred within a community of elders. Here is a short film of Weaver and Shaw talking about their residency at Metal Peterborough, working on their new project Last Gasp which is a call and response to the precarities of ageing and of our age.
