Through contemporary, Latin and hip hop dance forms, The “F” Word is a powerful dance performance that explores the struggles of facing feminism.
GRANDE MIDLIFE MOCHA LATTE, by 1978 Bad Ass Bitches
Straight, gay, single, married, pregnant… will these five women survive midlife or die trying? A sexy, funny, and sometimes shocking one-woman show.
LIPSTIQUE, by Mix Mix Collective
Bright, bold, and extravagant. We celebrate women and the feminine and the various essences they bring to the street dance styles. We ask ourselves what is the future of the feminine?
LYSISTRATA, by Aristophanes, how.dare.collective
Lysistrata leads a rebellious group of women in a sex strike, hoping to end the war that is tearing their country apart. In this modern adaptation of Aristophanes’ classic comedy, how.dare.collective. puts a burlesque spin on this tale of resistance and desire.
NASTY, by Maelstrom Art Collective
Where do all the nasty women go? The witches, hags, and shrews all wind up here in The Museum. When given the chance to tell their own stories, will these wicked women be redeemed?
NASTY WOMAN, by Kathryn Landon, Good Company
Growing up Female ain’t for Sissies.
NOURISHMENT, by ECM Theatre
Inspired by the many ways and places in which women have gathered to discuss politics, share stories, and nourish one another throughout history; this piece is an exploration of women as activists, caregivers, and revolutionaries.
PICAZA, by Inamorata Dance Collective
A multidisciplinary telling of one woman’s journey to achieving self awareness, including those of the people and places that surround her along the way. Drawing upon strong roots in Latin culture, this story follows her endeavour to identify with her family, her romances, and her environment.
SHE GREW FUNNY, by Joanne O’Sullivan, O’Sullivan Lane Productions/Brett McCraig Productions
