Event description


Artist Aanisa Vylet will share her personal story in order to open an important conversation with other women about their stories.

Together with director Dino Dimitriadis from Apocalypse Theatre Company, Aanisa will present the Woman followed by the forum: The Woman speaks.

The Woman is Aanisa's second play and it is a story about her mother. Both liars, both friends and polite feminists migrating to other countries to live the life they imagined for themselves. The woman takes you on a racy red ride into the freedom women seek in their lives.

With free rose tea and baklava, come and join us for a safe and open discussion to support female artists living in Western Sydney.
