Our audiences have told us that they loved the works programmed at FemFest 2010! We owe a huge thank you to all of the artists who worked so hard, to our dedicated volunteers and all of our supporters. FemFest is a huge event for an independent theatre company and we couldn’t do it alone. We continue to hear from all the artists involved and those attending that it is a necessary and important festival.
As we recover from this year, we are already planning for FemFest 2011: Staging Inspiration. Check out the newsfeed on our website, www.sarasvati.ca, where you will find the call for submissions to FemFest 2011.
We also have some remaining copies of the much anticipated anthology Generation NeXXt: Contemporary Scenes for Young Women. This is a valuable resource for all female performers, for educators needing scenes for use in the classroom and for theatre-lovers. There are 16 scenes by women playwrights and they cover an array of topics, from comedic to dramatic. If you are interested in purchasing a copy for the great price of $18, call (586-2236) or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We’re also slowly getting photos up on facebook!
Finally, we aren’t resting easy as we are currently touring our forum theatre piece No Offense… to high schools throughout Winnipeg and surrounding areas. This show was original created and done as a staged reading at FemFest 2009, then premiered as a full production at FemFest 2010.
