“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 is a festival of performances, encounters and exchange around women who revision known narratives to reclaim Her Side of the Story from the footnotes.
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.
