Fourteen Women, Eight Days, One Vision

For eight days in May, Montreal-based director and Necessary Angel associate artist, Brigitte Haentjens, travelled to Toronto to work with fourteen actresses on poet Erín Moure’s English translation of Louise Dupré’s Tout Comme Elle, a poignant and daring piece about the necessary separation of daughter and mother.  The workshop was in preparation for Tout Comme Elle’s premiere in Toronto in June 2011, which will feature a cast of fifty women.  The workshop ensemble included Raven Dauda, Laura de Carteret, Rosemary Dunsmore, Kyra Harper, Fiona Highet, Maggie Huculak, Joan Kivanda, Jani Lauzon, Amber Mills, Jessica Moss, Tara Nicodemo, Fiona Reid, Dharini Woollcombe and Jean Yoon.
