By Annie George and Flore Gardner
“Just because you can’t say something, doesn’t mean it can’t be said.”
Annie George writes and performs in this collaboration with visual artist Flore Gardner, to unwind twa contrasting stories about women who are silenced and who discover other means of expression besides the voice to convey their truths.
Memoir, myth and magic realism, are woven together in a powerful blend of theatrical storytelling, and digital and live performance drawing.
In a journey between parallel worlds, guided by dark poetic text, startling imagery, music and sound design, Twa explores how the creative act can become an act of resistance.
