Women's Work 2010
Tennessee Women's Theater Project returns to the Looby Theater on Friday May 7, with its fourth annual Women's Work showcase of performing and visual arts created by women. Running through Sunday May 23, the festival cuts across typical borders of style, medium and genre. Women's Work offers 10 completely different programs: poetry and essays; one-woman shows; staged readings of new plays; dance, and even a clown performance combining the Pochinko and Commedia dell' Arte Bouffon styles.
