We think we know how life begins. Wrapped in darkness, we burst into light – then we’re nurtured, encouraged. We giggle and dream.
But this isn’t life. These are lies.
I’m Woman is a different kind of life story. Raw and unflinching, I’m Woman is naked reality torn from the womb – a stark and brutal truth in the body of a woman with a world to confront.
Acclaimed performer Ana Daud delivers an explosive one-woman telling of her own raging and tormented tale. From abuse and abortion to exploitation and fear, Daud revisits the events on which her life has turned – a physical tour de force that scorches the air and demands that audiences ask searching questions of themselves.
Since its first performance in 2018, I’m Woman has created a theatrical storm that needs to be weathered in the flesh. From startling revelations through to laughter, pain and tears, it’s a laboratory dissection of one woman’s irresistible spirit – and an unforgettable exploration of the thudding heartbeat that defines us all.
This is not a standard theatre play but it’s an emotional experience which lets you rethink relationships and change your perspective about past experiences.
