The _______ Monologues: Making space for YOU to fill the blank

ASUW Women’s Action Commission presents

as a part of the production previously known the Vagina Monologues

For the past eleven years, 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, we have decided to switch the script. This year’s production will be entirely student written and performed. We are excited to announce the first ever presentation of The __________ Monologues. And we want you to take part.

This production is hoping to center the experiences of women, trans*, genderqueer and gender non-conforming folks. Students of all races, classes, sexual orientations, minds, bodies, ages and religions are encouraged to audition.

The Monologues will occur on February 14th, 15th, 16th. If you are interested in participating, here are your next steps:

1) Read the in-depth process explaination and fill out this Catalyst survey:

2) Attend an Open Call session (you will chose your possible session dates on the catalyst survey)

3) Contact WAC with any questions, comments, critiques or clarifications.

NOTE: The catalyst survey will close on November 13th, at 11:45pm.

Thank you for reading. Spread the word.
