Auckland Fringe Festival
Words of women wound through history and myth. Women who are wives, who do not know what they have and hold. Women who are not warriors but are no less at war.
A year’s development work in Printable Reality’s ‘page2stage’ programme has produced VOW. Writer/Performers Maria Ji & Hannah Rose Owen-Wright (performing with Kiran Foster, Joni Nelson, & Marianne Villanueva) each bring recreated stories of violence and love, ancient tales given new tongues, of women who are wives, and of who and how they have loved. After their gorgeous performances at TAPAC, the individual pieces SLANT by Maria Ji (created under the mentorship of Natalie Hugill) and (EM)BEDDED/BODIED by Hannah Rose Owen-Wright (created under the mentorship of Raewyn Alexander) have been re-fitted for the Auckland Fringe, and are being presented under the new banner of VOW at Ironbar on K Rd.
