Literary obsessions, teen truckers and fairy tale rejections – find out what young women have to say about the state of the world? Sarasvàti Productions is excited to focus on stories of young women at their tenth cabaret of monologues to celebrate International Women’s Week. This year’s theme is Rise Up and explores the diversity of the next generation of women! Last year’s public performance sold out and monologues also toured to International Women’s Week celebrations across the province. Once again this year, audiences will be treated to a line-up of powerful and hilarious pieces while celebrating women’s experiences.
Sarasvàti Productions launched this popular event in 2003 as a special way to commemorate International Women’s Week. Over the years it has featured dozens of monologues from playwrights across Canada. Our goal is to provide a range of voices, issues and styles that relate to women’s experiences. As well, we have been fortunate enough to work with organizations from across Manitoba to assist in fundraising and awareness.
The full performance of the cabaret of monologues will take place on March 7 & 8, 2014 at the Colin Jackson Studio Theatre (at Prairie Theatre Exchange, 3rd Floor Portage Place) at 8pm. Tickets are only $10. Click here for the full line-up and to purchase tickets!
About International Women’s Day: In 1977, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolutions calling on member states to proclaim a day for women’s rights and international peace. Following the UN’s lead, Canada chose March 8 as International Women’s Day (IWD). Over time, International Women’s Day has grown into a week-long series of commemorative events and activities across the country, recognizing global progress toward general equality.
