Prior to 2012, the UW Vagina Monologues have been a powerful experience for many cast members and audiences in creating a space for stories to be shared and heard. While the monologues have historically done some work in shaking fundamental notions of “woman”, feminist, anti-racist, and queer critiques have challenged the monologues’ presentation of stories, diversity of voices, and handling of identity representations.
In an effort to use these critiques productively and open up space for narratives stretch the production to a new potential, WAC decided to switch the script in 2012. Continuing on with the new tradition, this year’s production will again be entirely student written and performed. We are excited to announce the third production of The __________ Monologues. And we want you to take part!
This production is hoping to center the experiences of women, trans*, gender non-conforming and genderqueer folks. Students of all races, classes, sexual orientations, minds, bodies, ages and religions are encouraged to audition. The Monologues will occur on February 11th, 12th, and 13th.
