Her Side of the Story: Revision to Resist
A festival of performances, encounters and exchange around women who revise known narratives to reclaim Her Side of the Story from the footnotes.
October 27 – November 5, 2017 at Centaur Theatre
Featuring emerging Montreal directors: Tamara Brown, Cristina Cugliandro, Sophie Gee and Jennifer Quinn
“Re-vision – the act of looking back, of seeing with fresh eyes, of entering an old text from a new critical direction-is, for women, more than a chapter in cultural history: it is an act of survival.”
– Adrienne Rich, When We Dead Awaken: Writing as Re-Vision
Her Side of the Story: Revision to Resist explores revision as an act of reclamation and resistance for women and marginalized groups. The festival is theatre unplugged; a lab for exchange between emerging and established artists and an opportunity to explore character, text and story with radical imagination and depth. The festival will take place at Centaur Theatre and will feature 4 plays directed by 4 emerging Montreal directors. Imago Theatre will be announcing the plays in the fall of 2017.
