I have been my own road
Thematic readings exclusively by women authors from all eras and all walks of life. Whether they're talking about fear, courage, bodies, slavery, nature or pleasure, these women authors set out to understand the world through their diverse experiences.
In public, we read extracts from novels, poetry, theatre, comic strips, songs and personal accounts, giving a chance to hear the voices of those who are seldom heard.
Organic theatre - Emmanuelle Mehring
Emmanuelle Mehring fights against the invisibility of women's thoughts and words in the public arena. Her work takes a variety of forms, including readings, musicals, theatre and dance. Her commitment is to bring out of the silence those who are not heard or heard too little. "I wanted to be as men wanted me to be: a rough outline of life; a game of hide-and-seek with my being. But I was made of the present, I was my own road." Julia Burgos
