Riot Grrrl Angry Women event

Organized by Quito Ziegler

Part 1: Wednesday, April 2, 4:30-6:30 pm

Part 2: Wednesday, April 9  4:30-6:30 pm

On April 3-6. the HERE Arts Center will present Angry Women REvisited, a fifteen-person ensemble multidisciplinary performance re-exploring the 1990s classic feminist text Angry Women, conceived and directed by J Dellecave.

REsearch Angry Women
Some of us were heavily influenced by the interviews in the original Angry Women text, released in the early 1990s.  Some of us missed the boat entirely.  All of us live in times that are rapidly changing, and the hope is these discussions will help us get our heads around it.

The Future Feminist Tea Party is an open learning space for feminists at all levels of experience, from remedial to academic, that values the intersection of ideas and lived experiences.  We will come together over tea and cake for a hearty discussion of Angry Women, transfeminism, and the evolution of feminism. Participants are encouraged (but not required!) to make a 3-session commitment:

1)  April 2 : Discuss selections from the original text (please come prepared with the questions it raised for you)

2)  Go see the show on your own!

3)  April 9 : Regroup, debrief, process

Tea and cakes will be served. Feel free to stop in late if you must.
5 bucks if you have it
(no worries if you don’t)

Info on the Angry Women performance + fundraiser below!

The Future Feminist Tea Parties are inspired by artist Kembra Pfahler’s idea of future feminism, where “alpha males and male sky gods no longer make all the rules” and binaries no longer exist.

Angry Women REvisited Indiegogo and show dates!

Angry Women REvisited, conceived and directed by J Dellecave, is a fifteen-person ensemble multi-disclipinary performance examining the interviews of badass (and sometimes problematic) activists/artists of the 1990s, through the lens of 2014 ideas about feminism, and grounding our inquiry in the pages of the classic feminist text, REsearch Journal’s Angry Women. We are a queer cast of dancers, filmmakers, theatre makers, theatre scholars, visual artists, puppeteers, animators, musicians, writers, and rabble rousers, across a wide spectrum of genders. The opportunity to work through important ideas with such a diverse cast is a once in a lifetime opportunity. We were fortunate to be selected for a performance at HERE, 145 6th Avenue, in Manhattan, April 3-6, 2014. The cast of Angry Women REvisited wants to be able to share all of our work with you and our audience, in its fullest professional capacity, and for that we need the funds to support this project.
