She Persists: Women's Performance Workshop
Civic Ensemble presents She Persists a devised performance using personal narratives from women-identified members of the Ithaca community. She Persists is the culmination of a yearlong workshop aimed at creating a community of women. Using the template of consciousness-raising groups that sprung out of the Womens Movement, the womens performance workshop creates a safe space for women to talk about their personal lives and socially relevant issues. From these conversations, participants shaped their stories into an interwoven performance.
She Persists decentralizes the hierarchal power relationships usually found in traditional theater productions. Each workshop participant has served as the director of their own show and each story has been created with the input of the entire ensemble.
The performance will feature Ithaca community members Sue Brightly, Sherron Brown, Ali Diemecke, Jazlin Gomez, Rachel Gould, Amelia Habicht, Jayme Kilburn, Gloria Majule, Priscilla Olympio, Sue Perlgut, Margaret Reed, Anna Sannes, and Erin Stoneking.
There are Pay What You Can tickets available at the door for each performance.
