In this adventurous and celebratory performance event, Glasgow based artist Nic Green exuberantly examines feminism, inviting women of all ages and backgrounds to share the stage in an energetic tribute. Presented across the UK to wide acclaim, Trilogy now greets Melbourne with its bold and joyous proclamation.
Trilogy begins by celebrating women in today’s world – with all their complexities, in their skins and as they are. Footage from the landmark 1971 discussion.
Town Bloody Hall – in which Norman Mailer took on passionate feminists including Germaine Greer – kicks off the responses and reflections of five young performers; before an exuberant paean for womankind concludes an evening of eclectic style and rousing energy.
Honest and adventurous, Trilogy deftly weaves performance, participation, discussion, music and archival material; carving out new space for feminism and rallying the power and strength in women together.
