Unwoman is a woman.
Unwoman is not a woman.
Unwoman performs woman.
Unwoman cannot give birth.
Unwoman has given birth many times.
Unwoman has had many abortions.
Unwoman is bleeding.
Unwoman is grieving.
Unwoman is angry.
Unwoman is a crime.
Unwoman is a real and substantial risk.
A post-menopausal woman carries her unborn child, subject to constant physical labour. But the flame of Brigid burns. Hidden miracles erupt from the earth and crawl back into the belly of the woman.
Brought to you by award-winning feminist theatre company THE RABBLE (Melbourne, Australia) and trailblazing Irish artist Maeve Stone (Dublin), this production is an exploded ordnance site of what it is to be Unwoman.
Performed by Olwen Fouéré.
