Quotable Women is a celebration of women improvisors. Using quotes from notable women throughout history as inspiration, Quotable Women will take us on a playful expedition into the often untold stories of women. Power, submission, lust, love, sexuality, body image, success, politics, friends, sister, mothers, daughters, whores, virgins and lovers. Join this all female cast on a journey from concubine to feminist, from damsel in distress to patriarchal working woman.
Quotable Women was first performed in Melbourne, Australia on the anniversary of the first women’s rights convention in the USA. It has also been performed at the Welcome Festival (Rome, Italy),Calgary Improv Festival (Calgary, Canada) and Lipschtick A celebration of Women in Improv (London, UK).
Quotable Women was created by Patti Stiles to acknowledge and celebrate women who inspire from all walks of life. The cast are asked to share quotes that connect with them personally as a stimulus. The result is an evening of powerful female voices, triggering the imaginations of a female cast, in a space allowing the cast to step into the challenge of playing characters and stories which they do not normally encountered in other improvisational forms.
