Bankstown Arts Centre

The Woman Speaks (Women's Only Event)

With free rose tea and baklava, come and join us for a safe and open discussion to support female artists living in Western Sydney.

Artist Aanisa Vylet will share her personal story in order to open an important conversation with other women about their stories.

Together with director Dino Dimitriadis from Apocalypse Theatre Company, Aanisa will present the Woman followed by the forum: The Woman speaks.

The Woman is Aanisa's second play and it is a story about her mother. Both liars, both friends and polite feminists migrating to other countries to live the life they imagined for themselves. The woman takes you on a racy red ride into the freedom women seek in their lives.

Date: 21 October 2017
Location: Bankstown Arts Centre Theatre
Ticket information: 
Online - $5 / At the Door - $10

The event is a Women's Only Event suitable for 18 years and up.

This event is a partnership with The Big Anxiety - festival of + art + science + people

The Big Anxiety brings together artists, scientists and communities to question and re-imagine the state of mental health in the 21st century.

Whether through hi-tech interactive environments or one-on-one dialogues, The festival aims to create the rich engagements we need for our collective mental health.
