Weaving Women Together

Weaving Women Together

By Nikki Weaver

January 17 – 28, 2018

Directed by Gretchen Corbett

ABOUT

In October 2015, Nikki Weaver sent a letter to 60 women – some she knew and some she didn’t – requesting a piece of fabric and an explanation of its sentimental value. The result is Weaving Women Together, an entirely female-driven piece about the loss of Weaver’s mother and how she has collected her in other women, and a magic skirt made entirely of the tales – and fabric – shared by these women.

All performances in this limited, two week run will take place at the Hampton Opera Center, 211 SE Caruthers Street, Portland.
