Come hear five diverse writers whose work is centered in Queens (or NYC or the U.S.) and another location, as they consider how words can express the experience of traversing worlds. How can a writer provide cultural immersion for a reader through image and language? How does memory and history play a part in how we portray setting, location or place? And why is it important to convey such cross cultural experiences – artistically, socially, politically, or otherwise?
Nancy Agabian, Ahimsa Timoteo Bodhrán, Joseph O. Legaspi, Margarita Soto, and Sweta Srivastava Vikram will read fiction, poetry and nonfiction that crosses borders, cultures and ideologies. They’ll also discuss their experience of incorporating history — personal, cultural, and/or geographical - as part of the writing process.
CultureHub at La MaMa and Spiderwoman Theater
A Reading of
Women in Violence II
Wednesday June 6, 2012 at 8:00pm
at CultureHub, 47 Great Jones St / 3rd Floor.
Culture Hub at La MaMa and Spiderwoman Theater invite you to a reading of the first draft of Women in Violence II, Wednesday June 6 at 8:00pm at La MaMa’s CultureHub.
Women in Violence II is inspired by Women in Violence, Spiderwoman Theater’s revolutionary 1976 production. Women in Violence created a firestorm of controversy wherever it was performed and confirmed Spiderwoman Theater’s ascendancy with some 70 performances in New York and Boston within a year of its debut.
Women in Violence II is a multi-layered, multi-faceted and multigenerational theater project that will be created from the weaving of stories of violence, of healing and of renewal from Indigenous women in communities across Turtle Island. We are excited to be working in collaboration with Aanmitaagzi, an Indigenous multi-disciplinary arts organization, founded by Penny Couchie ( Ojibway and Mohawk) and Sid Bobb (Sto:lo) and located on Nipissing First Nation in Northern Ontario.
