Revolution They Wrote: Short Works Feminist Theatre and Performance Festival
Revolution They Wrote: Short Works Feminist Theatre and Performance Festival presented in partnership with MainLine Theatre is a 4-day event that aims to present new feminist works. With these works, we create an artistic space that is primed to educate, provoke and inspire change both on the stage and in our daily lives.
Program 1 is taking place in the Minimain with the following shows:
The Ambassador's wife
presented by Vanessa Kneale
By Nastasia Pappas-Kemps
Directed by Amanda goldberg
A We Are One Production
The privileged and spoiled daughter of an Earl finds herself falling for a humble footman with a secret past, though 'footman' may not be the best way to describe her love interest. When it is revealed that this cautious servant reciprocates these feelings, the two are forced to confront the societal barriers standing in their way.
How To Be A Good Modern Woman
Presented by TEAM GRECO
“How to be a Good Modern Woman” is an introductory course for women looking to assess their sad lives, and assert themselves into the world. We will teach you how to seem strong, learn to surpass your female peers, and get the life you deserve. A superior one.
Fragments of Her Rising
By Cleopatra Boudreau
Fragments of Her Rising explores the role of sexuality and intersectionality in the lives of two very different women. Song, poem, and found text intertwin to express some of the stigmas facing women and their bodies today.

With a lending library of designated dancers for all you wallflowers, and a dancecard-booklet to set up dances in advance (should you choose to), Montreal Slowdance has all slow songs, all night long! It's high school with a happy ending. Come and experience why slow is beautiful, and why love is not ironic.
Confabulation is a unique storytelling event in Montreal, Toronto and Victoria where all the stories told are true. They are honest accounts presented without notes, props, or gimmicks. The show hopes to encourage the practice and art of storytelling in this contemporary world.
The Fake Artgarms is a feminist exhibition to talk about women’s sexuality differently! By destroying taboos and stereotypes, a group of 10 artists, mainly students, want to generate empowerment, better communication, better self-knowledge, confidence and solidarity.
