Sneak Peek of Spiderwoman Theatre's MATERIAL WITNESS

Material Witness by Spiderwoman Theater open this Thursday, May 12, 2016.  The piece addresses the searing issue of violence against Indigenous women. Their stories range from encounters with everything from stalking, to domestic violence, to rape. But far from hitting the audience over the head with tragedy, tales are conveyed subtly, artfully, sometimes even humorously, from a perspective of frank assurance and empowerment. All are woven together through interconnecting layers of language, images, and dance, creating a theatrical collage.  

Above are photos of the set instillation, which is itself another type of collage, including handmade quilts.  Come see Material Witness, at The First Floor Theatre at La MaMa through May 29, 2016, only.
