Written by Jessica Johnson (Open Clasp’s associate artist)
Directed by Katja Roberts
Starring Farrah Cave
Produced by Open Clasp Theatre Company
In partnership with Teesside University and Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art (MIMA).
Inspired by the 2021 International Women’s Day theme of #ChooseToChallenge
At Open Clasp, we advocate for social, political and cultural change using theatre to raise the often-ignored voices of those who identify as women and young women. As we continue to adapt and overcome difficulties in a global pandemic, we have the opportunity right now to fight for a new world, to end violence, oppression and discrimination against women and girls.
This new film will inspire you to use the arts as your rallying cry and to #ChooseToChallenge.
We are encouraging young women locally and globally, to artistically #ChooseToChallenge. Whether it is designing a campaign website, writing a poem, painting or photographing inspiring women making change in your local area, we want you to creatively use your voice! Use the hashtag #ChooseToChallenge and tag @OpenClasp on Twitter and Instagram or @openclasptheatreco on TikTok and share your response or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you run a youth leadership programme or youth club, please email email@example.com for more information and to let us know how you are using the film to inspire!
