We would like to take a moment to look back at a few of the many highlights of FemFest 2019: All the World’s a Stage!
This year was a dynamic festival that included new works, touring shows that pushed the boundaries of traditional theatre, and many opportunities for creative inspiration and development.
Our touring shows included real life mothers and daughters and a Pop Art performance in a setting that included an audience of only 4 people! Both of these shows challenged the way we look at theatre and audience interaction, and were each inspiring in their own unique way. We also had our very first canine performer! Tulia, a guide dog who played the part of herself in Raising Stanley/Life with Tulia.
Our workshops gave emerging artists a chance for mentorship and show development, a devised creation, many new works in progress, performances, and readings.
And this year we took FemFest to the streets with our walking tour! Making Winnipeg’s downtown a stage for music, spoken word poetry, comedy, ASL dance, and puppet theatre.
Thank you to our many amazing volunteers, artists and festival patrons, you all made FemFest 2019 a tremendous success.
