We are excited to be putting in to place an exciting line-up of artists for FemFest 2014: She’s Got the Power! Probably the biggest challenge has been casting the role of Helen for the world premiere of The Naked Woman by Rebecca Gibson. A mostly naked 84-year old is a hard bill to fill but it will be a thrill for audiences to see how we transform performer Nan Fewchuk to tackle the role. Nan just came off our successful run of Fefu and Her Friends. Alongside her in the role of Dennis, we are excited to welcome Grant Burr back to the FemFest stage after his performance in Flood Control last year. Both are currently performing in the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival. You can catch Nan in Quo Vadis and Grant in Shadow Spaces.
For full details on these two FemFest favourites, check out this weeks’ blog. Every Thursday we will feature other festival artists as shows are cast and the team put in place!
