Samuel Beckett Theatre
Unwoman is a woman
Unwoman is not a woman
Unwoman performs woman
Unwoman cannot give birth
Unwoman has given birth many times
Unwoman has had many abortions
Unwoman is bleeding
Unwoman is grieving
Unwoman is angry
Unwoman is a crime
Unwoman is a real and substantial risk.
A post-menopausal woman carries her unborn child, subject to constant physical labour. But the flame of Brigid burns. Hidden miracles erupt from the earth and crawl back into the belly of the woman.
Brought to you by award-winning feminist theatre company THE RABBLE (Melbourne, Australia) and trailblazing Irish artist Maeve Stone (Dublin), this production is an exploded ordinance site of what it is to be Unwoman.
Creators THE RABBLE (Emma Valente & Kate Davis) & Maeve Stone
Performed by Olwen Fouéré
Made with commissioning support from Dublin Fringe Festival and developed at FRINGE LAB. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body. Producing support provided by Pan Pan Theatre (Ireland).
