We are excited to be lining up an amazing selection of pieces for our March 2020 International Women’s Week Cabaret of Monologues. This year’s theme is… Changes. A wide variety of solo performances will explore how we navigate a changing world. The decision not to have a child, coping with the reality of a newborn, a satirical look at what climate change might mean to children, and a woman who uses an elevator to out-maneuver a predator. These are just a few of the topics covered with plenty more to come

Monologues included this year are:

Masks by Makrenna Sterdan
Performed by Renee Hill
Ms. Jones works to keep positive as she teaches a school of children about air pollution. But, when she is alone with fellow teachers and staff, the dark truth about the day’s lesson is revealed.

Yearning-Distance by Beth Lanigan
Performed by Saira Rahman
A new mother struggles to describe her changing world and herself. She simultaneously experiences and explores the detachment and dissociation of her postpartum depression.

The A Word by Brooklyn Alice Lee
Performed by Lizzie Knowles
A young woman enters The Women’s Hospital, alone and afraid she struggles to complete paperwork while questioning the nurse and herself about her decision to terminate her pregnancy.

Ping by Larissa Hikel
Performed by Taesia Scratch
Jessamyn returns home from a late shift at the bar she works at. She is cautious entering her apartment building as she recounts the terrifying events from the night before. Events that women today know are far too common.

In addition we are presenting an array of artists in other mediums, works in progress are:

  • Kweskina by Wanda Wilson will incorporate original music and storytelling
  • Once Upon Another Time by Maria Grant
  • The bold, beautiful and Deaf by Joanna Hawkins will integrate mime
  • Traumatic Resilience by Sadie-Phoenix Lavoie will feature her original spoken word
  • and to lighten the mood we will have comedy with Oversharer by Kristen Einarson

International Women’s Week: Cabaret of Monologues will take place from March 2-8, 2020. We will once again tour the monologues to various locations around Manitoba and offer two public performances of the full line-up on March 7th. Last year we were excited to travel as far as Flin Flon and to perform in tiny classrooms as well as huge museums. If you’re interested in hosting any of this year’s monologues, give us a call at (204) 586-2236 or email us at info@sarasvati.ca!
