Seven women from various walks of life will debut their new “first person” solo theatre pieces that run the gamut from comic to serious, and poetic to music-filled, with themes that include mental health, love, loss, family and showbiz.
In the fall of 2022, Jeannine Haas, Artistic Director of Pauline Productions—with a mission of “strong roles for women onstage and behind the scenes since 2006″—put out a call for women who would like participate in an on-going workshop in which they could dive deep develop a solo theatre piece based on their own life experiences. Thirteen women, many of them alums or inspired by the Ko Festival’s Story Slams and “First Person: Crafting Your Story for Performance” workshops, accepted the call and met regularly, engaging in a group process to develop and support one another. Sabrina Hamilton, Artistic Director of the Ko Festival has joined in to support the project both administratively and artistically. This Festival is the first showing of seven of the fruits of this labor.
Jeannine Haas, Artistic Director of Pauline Productions and Sabrina Hamilton, Artistic Director of KoFest co-facilitated the development workshops and directed the pieces, along with Liesel De Boor. The seven pieces, which vary in length from 20 to 45 mins, have been divided into two separate programs. See more detailed information below.
