Culture Project’s Women Center Stage is committed to supporting and vigorously promoting the work of women artists, and celebrating the unique contribution of women to social justice and human rights.
At the core of Women Center Stage is the next iteration of our unique and successful Directors’ Weekend, in which we invite 14 directors to create 15-30 minute pieces on a prompt and present them over the course of two weekends. This year’s director-driven pieces use theatre in a unique way to address issues of immigration, presidential impeachment, criminal justice reform, and racism in our community or in our nation.
Both full length and short films will be presented with a Q & A and panels with the directors. Our feature filmmakers will include Deeyah Khan, Helen Whitney, Abby Disney, Lekha Singh, and Pamela Yates
In WCS 2018, We will be producing a canon of Greek plays as they relate to modern day politics. A reading of reimagined Medea and Working 2018 will be presented in the festival. This will be a commissioned adaptation with the view toward a fully produced version in the near future.
Focusing on racism, criminal justice system reform, gender and economic inequality, immigration, and enhanced panel discussions.
