#∞ (Hashtag Infinity) – An Equity-Approved Showcase production.
With a cast of women whose ages span six decades, #∞ weaves personal stories reflecting women’s oppression through video, spoken word, monologue, and scenes – integrated with a rhythm which evolves from the flow of music and movement into words. Developed from interviews of women sharing their experience, all inherently anchored to the essence of being a woman, it is set in a playground during a game of Tag with a home base, representing safe and unsafe spaces on the stage. Whereas #MeToo became prolific, we amplify, in performing landscape, that women’s exploitation is beyond prolific, it is infinite. #MeToo is just the tip of the iceberg.
