March 2018 Meeting

Women at Work— in Art and Theatre

Thursday March 8, 2018, The Grand Long Beach

Sparking Curiosity was a three year community based theatre research project directed by Andrea Caban, Head of Voice & Speech in the Theatre Arts Department at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB). Each year, a group of CSULB and Long Beach High School students were cast as researcher/performers. The group identified core questions, then interviewed and transcribed conversations with subjects to investigate and embody their research questions. Year one of the project focused on the family, specifically mothers. Year two expanded the scope to community. For year three, the project expanded further asking a global question: How do women around the world define, engage in and get compensated for work? Caution: Women at Work was the culminating theatrical event. Interviewees include a Swedish woman on the first international AIDS research team, an Iraqi lawyer, a homemaker from Botswana and a Chilean actress, among others. This arts-based research brings into consciousness inequities work-force women face and creates space for dialogue.

Our March program on March 8th, in honor of International Women’s Day features Andrea Caban and four performers from Sparking Curiosity performing an excerpt from Caution: Women at Work. Please join us for dinner and a show. This is definitely a program that you won’t want to miss!
