Her Side of the Story: Revision to Resist
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.
October 31 – November 5, 2017 at Centaur Theatre
“Imago Theatre’s Her Side of the Story: Revision to Resist was an inspirational event; it gave women leadership roles in producing the shows. In each production, women were at the forefront, and their stories were finally heard.”-The Link newspaper
