Second Revealing Women Introductory Session

Darwin Community Arts - Tue, 09/29/2015 - 20:06

Wednesday 30 September 7pm at  Darwin Community Arts Studio,  Malak Shopping Centre
Shel O'Toole and CemeNTworx Community Theatre are seeking interest from women in their new collaborative project Revealing Women which is an exploration of intimacy and sexuality.
A small group met Sunday night and had wide ranging conversations including how the questions on the original flyer might be intimidating for some women.  Please be assured these introduction sessions are conversations where we laugh, we speak, we listen, we share.  All we ask is that you join in the conversation.  There is plenty of time afterwards to decide  if you want to remain involved over the life of the project, whether that be in the development or the actual production.
One thing Brenda Logan and I trust  is women's wisdom so the actual design of the production will emerge throughout the project along with the stories that need to be told.
Our first meeting concluded by the group acknowledging that women's experiences  are influenced by a range of factors including family, culture, class and knowing we really want to have a diverse group of women involved.
Please call Shel on 0429 199 825 if you require more information

Revealing Women

Darwin Community Arts - Tue, 09/08/2015 - 15:01

Shel O’Toole and CemeNTworx  Community Theatre are seeking interest in their new collaborative project which they aim to present during next year’s Darwin Fringe Festival.  Revealing Women is an exploration of intimacy and sexuality from a woman’s perspective. 
Questions to be explored in the development of the show include:

  • How confident are you in developing intimacy?
  • How comfortable are you discussing sexuality? With your partner? With others?
  • How has your sexual expression evolved throughout your life?
  • What inhibits your expression of your sexuality?

It is envisaged the production will be a series of vignettes that are expressed through spoken word, dance, song and any other art-form we have the knowledge to create. 
The first conversations will occur on Sunday 27 September, 2015 5pm & Wednesday 30 September 7pm at Darwin Community Arts, Malak Shopping Centre, Cnr Malak/Chambers Crescents.
Please call Shel on 0429199825 if you require more information.
