6 Women is about the extraordinariness of ordinary women and tells real stories of bravery, courage, and defiance from women across Oxfordshire. It will feature six women each from a different decade of their lives, aged between 20-80, and will ask what it is like to be a woman today and how much age changes one’s perspective.
Research has been funded by Oxford City Council Culture Fund and the University of Oxford Community Fund.
All ages. 1 hour. This is a work in progress. In the OFS Studio. £5.
Reviews of company's previous work:
"I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect, but nothing would have prepared me for this moving, thought-provoking and utterly breathtakingly enacted performance." - Silke Ackerman, Director of the Museum of the History of Science
"While They’re Away dealt with a wide and rich range of material about Oxford during the First World War, weaving together many strands. I was impressed by the ambition of the project but also its focus on a number of recurring characters, whose simple, human stories and the subtle performances that brought them to life rooted the whole experience and kept it engaging." - Jonathan Lloyd, Artistic Director Pegasus Theatre
"The excellent cast, directed by Lizzy McBain, puts the entertaining script over with aplomb, and takes audience interaction in its stride" - Oxford Times
"Mapping Wonderland sits interestingly somewhere between a historical walking tour and a site-responsive performance, feeling at home amongst Oxford’s tourist trade whilst retaining a frisson of adventure…UnderConstruction’s bold work with spaces has the potential to be richly rewarding." - Total Theatre Magazine
