THE RABBLE and Maeve Stone featuring Olwen Fouéré, Dana Miltins and Mary Helen Sassman.
Unwoman is a woman. Unwoman is not a woman. Unwoman is song. Unwoman is a crime. Unwoman is a real and substantial risk.
The SUBSTATION premieres UNWOMAN, an uncompromising piece of feminist theatre by THE RABBLE in collaboration with Irish director, composer and writer Maeve Stone.
This immersive multimedia theatre work examines bodily autonomy and reproductive rights. Cryptic, fierce and thought provoking, the work evokes Cailleach, the ancient Gaelic creation goddess and is brought to life by the remarkable Olwen Fouéré who inhabits the central role with ferocious intensity supported by Dana Miltins and Mary Helen Sassman.
Melbourne-based creators Emma Valente and Kate Davis formed THE RABBLE in 2006 from a desire to make work that wasn’t being produced in Australia: visually ambitious, political, feminist and formally experimental.
UNWOMAN received commissioning support from Dublin Fringe Festival and was developed at FRINGE LAB. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body. Producing support provided by Pan Pan Theatre (Ireland).
Presented by The SUBSTATION.
