It’s a play about gender and power – what is the arsenal and artillery at our disposal?
These themes, says Tibaldo, have to do entirely with the traces left behind in the wake of traumatic events. “Its structure is Greek in style,” says Tibaldo. “But it’s dealing with women now and men now. It’s a play about gender and power – what is the arsenal and artillery at our disposal?”
This seems the appropriate place to mention a new initiative being spearheaded by Nightwood Theatre. For 33 years, the independent Toronto theatre has been celebrating women’s voices by creating opportunities for female artists to practice their craft in all disciplines of theatre.
Since equality in the arts is still – sadly - an issue, Nightwood has sounded a call to action: a 10,000 Women Campaign in support of women’s voice in the arts.
For every $10 you donate, they invite you to honour a woman of your choice. When they hit the goal of 10,000 names, they will recognize the women publicly with an original art exhibit.
