Stories of five fictional women, fundamentally different and unconnected, but sharing the same core: the pain of living on when something essential is taken away. Human trafficking, family separation, suicide, depression, and rape are some of the themes explored in this original piece.
Based on true events, accounts, and testimonies. A reminder of the human stories behind news and statistics, told through poetry, dance and monologues.

‘A powerful piece! There are many levels displayed through the performance of these powerful stories’ (George Belliveau). ‘What a profoundly important piece of work’ (Marvin Westwood).
