When we began Picture Me, we were asked haven’t women said all these things before, haven’t we moved on in the debate…?
Yes, we answered, in so many ways we have…but in so many ways we haven’t. We felt that there are women out there who need to be given a platform, to voice their experiences and opinions…to tell their stories…to speak out!
Over the last few weeks we have been working with a fabulous group of women, who have been given the space to explore their stories through theatre. In a supportive, creative atmosphere they have been saying the un-sayable and started to lift the lid on a simmering saucepan of pain and anger…interspersed with much laughter! Sometimes it becomes too difficult and the lid is replaced temporarily…only for it to be blown sky high by a desire to speak out and move on.
There is still so much more to be said…
