Women’s Theatre Project

‘We Have a Chance to Make a Difference Til Our Dying Day’

Saturday 7th August, 7:30pm and Sunday 8th August, 3:30 and 7:30pm.

‘Women’s Theatre Project’ is an ’empowering women through theatre’ course facilitated by Philippa Williams. These 10 week courses have run termly since 2015 and alternate between performance/production and improv/process work. This is a performance term and we have explored the archetypes of Mother, Lover, Priestess, Warrior, Crone and Seeker. This made for rich material as we looked at how these characters appeared in our own lives and psyche. The play was devised and written by the group using process work, improvisation and creative writing.
The story is of a young woman in crisis searching for meaning in life and asking the age old question ‘Who am I?’
Which of her internal archetype characters should she follow? and what to do about ‘The System?’
She goes on a journey with a group of friends as they find their way towards acceptance, gratitude, surrender and freedom.
The performance includes poetic text, original choreography, a fabulous soundtrack and lots of singing!
Any profits from this production will be donated to The SHIFT Project in Byron Bay which supports women moving from homelessness to independence.
