I am also her

Thanks to the Australia Council for the Arts, Penny Glass and myself have begun our community partnership exploration in Brisbane, for I am also her (working title). We have met with BEMAC, and MDA, exploring the idea of working with these two organizations (and others) too develop links in the community. Links with women who are interested in engaging in a theatrical exploration around the theme of negotiating scripts; the multiple cultural pressures to conform to expectations of what is means to be ‘woman’, in ‘ones own’ understandings, or cultural context, and in an Australian context. The focus is on where  scripts leave ‘other’ desires. It has been a long time on, since the early day of feminist consc raising, and apparent growing gender fluidity, yet still somethings have not changed, and women are constantly navigating cultural tensions, as well as orthodox understandings, and meanings. I am also her, seeks to explore what those tensions are, and what ways women courageously, defiantly or otherwise, navigate meanings, in the pursuit of their own dreamings…for gender equality and justice.
