International Women's Day 2010

Inspirational Women’s Voices – Benefit for Exeter Women’s Aid – 7th March 2010

Posted in 2010 03 07, South West by womeninlondon on 23 February 2010

Inspirational Women’s Voices is a not-for-profit event, programmed as part of Exeter Phoenix’s 2010 International Women’s Day Programme.

Sunday 7th March 2010 at 8pm
Tickets cost £6/£5 on 01392 667 080

Singers Holly Ebony and Ella Turk-Richards will provide the music, while choreographer/performer Gemma Kempthorne and filmmaker Emily Keene present the premiere of Domestic Bliss – an entertaining and original live performance piece about the changing role of ‘woman in the home’.

Liv Torc, one of the country’s most outspoken and consistently hilarious stand-up poets, will take a comical look at the human condition known as ‘being a woman right now, right here’ and Elizabeth Jane Pennington, pictured top, will perform her most recent solo work, Blood Mother, adapted from the writings of the Spanish playwright and poet Federico Garcia Lorca.

International Women’s Day has been observed since the early 1900s – a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world, in which oppression and inequality was spurring women to become more vocal and active in campaigning for change.

Over the past three years, Exeter Phoenix has become an increasingly important representative organisation for the UK in terms of its contribution to International Women’s Day, which takes place annually on March 8.

All artists performing at Inspirational Women’s Voices will do so without a fee and Exeter Phoenix will donate all profits generated from tickets sales to Exeter Women’s Aid.
