Unwoman is song.
Unwoman is a crime.
Unwoman is a real and substantial risk.
UNWOMAN is an epic and imagistic piece of feminist theatre created in both Ireland and Australia, examining reproductive rights, experiences of pregnancy and bodily autonomy.
Made with THE RABBLE, professional performers and a community ensemble of pregnant performers, UNWOMAN is an invocation of the pregnant body as a plurality of experiences. It is visceral, carnal and an uncompromising piece of feminist theatre horrified by the history and laws attempting to curb bodily autonomy and reproductive rights.
Unwoman is a bold, exquisitely crafted work from a company at the height of its powers. Emma Valente and Kate Davis are geniuses. They’ve fused design and three styles of performance with sublime creative intelligence, weaving an interrogation of received ideas about women’s reproduction – set against the lived experience of it – into an unforgettable masterpiece.
