wivesWednesday, October 19




Presented by Vermont Performance Lab
The WIVES is a multi-disciplinary and shamelessly sensational three-woman performance collective visiting us from Montréal. With ACTION MOVIE, the WIVES examine the mass appeal of action movies from a feminist perspective and survey what kind of excitement can be had without the threat of violence, rape, or torture. This residency and IN THE WORKS showing are made possible with support from the New England Foundation for the Arts' National Dance Project, the Québec Government Office in Boston and VPL's Creation Fund donors.
WHEN: 7:00pm on Wednesday, October 19
WHERE: Serkin Dance Studio, Marlboro College, Marlboro, VT
TICKETS: FREE | No Reservations Required!
