Women Who Rock 2014



Showcasing Seattle Women at the 2014 (Un)Conference and Film Festival
Hosted by Women Who Rock

Review and photography by Naomi Musgrave.

Caribbean Steel Pan Project The Women's Caribbean Steel Pan Project On April 25, the second evening of the 2014 (Un)Conference and Film Festival was underway at Washington Hall. Hosted by Women Who Rock, the festival highlighted the work of various women in the arts. Following an afternoon of perusing the market and viewing the film festival, attendees gathered around the stage for a series of live performances.

The first was a large group of women, stepping onto the stage with a variety of stringed instruments. As the Seattle Fandango Project played energetically, pairs of women left their instruments and came forward. Each set of two women danced together, stomping their feet and rotating on the small stage. Their dance dominated the space with the rhythm they generated. The group of women, the Seattle Fandango Project, uses the fandango dance to draw people together and help build communities. People relaxed as they watched the women perform, stomping and clapping along.
