Voices of Women | Clearway (Corona)

27 August 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm AEST

Voices of Women presents an exclusive online screening of a short film about the stories we live, music we imagine and found plastic sculpture.

Shot on location at Articulate Project Space in Leichhardt, powerful actors Julia Christensen, Claudette Clarke and Bellatrix Scott and Guest Artists,  First Nations woman Kirli Saunders and poet Anne Casey bring new Australian stories to life.

Two solo musicians perform new Australian music by Elizabeth Jigalin, set against a backdrop of sculptural forms by Rox De Luca that draw attention to the serious global issue of plastic waste.

The filmmaker and editor is the highly attuned performance photographer and videographer Clare Hawley with lighting design by Sophie Parker.

Revel in short, punchy monologues and the moving and at times humorous world of Australian women’s stories. The joy and bewilderment of motherhood, the loneliness of drought, the journeys of strong First Nations women, surviving domestic violence, the bonds of friendship, the pain of betrayal, bus rides of the imagination, and avoiding the cracks in the pavement… not to mention the ever present Corona. Interwoven with the stories, be inspired by contemporary art music and found plastic sculptures.
