THY WOMAN’S WEEDS | MAY 20 – 31
A CO-PRODUCTION WITH REPERCUSSION THEATRE
Thy Woman’s Weeds is a fierce, subversive new work by one of Canada’s leading playwrights that boldly challenges and explores what it means to be a woman working with Shakespeare today. Driven by a chorus of women who are grappling with their relationship to Shakespeare, it begs the questions: Why do it? If we do it, how do we do it? How do we deal with the inherent gender discrepancies? The chorus invokes scenes in different parts of the theatre, at all parts of the process: in a rehearsal hall, in a dressing room, in the audience, and in the play itself.

Hearing, finding, translating Kiyoko
First in a series of articles by Julie Tamiko Manning about her process, her discoveries, and her struggles while writing Mizushōbai (The Water Trade), the recipient of the inaugural 2017 edition of More than a Footnote
“We could hear the tone and tilt and burst of Kiyoko’s voice but no one understood Japanese. Except Ayumi. The performance artist. The runner. The immunologist student. The sister of the writer whose novels I ate up because I ate up anything I could find from Japanese Canadian artists because I felt so alone and those were the people who made me see that I could be Japanese Canadian and an artist.”
