Feedback Theatre is excited to launch LUNA! A new theatre project that elevates and centres women's voices.
LUNA is a theatre group bringing together women from all over the world, who have survived forced displacement and gender based violence. It is delivered by Feedback Theatre in partnership withNew Diorama Theatre,MamaSuze, Solace Women’s Aid, The Medaille Trust, ECPAT, The Helen Bamber Foundation, Pan Intercultural Arts and Ella’s Home .
In 2022 a group of 12 women met weekly for 12 weeks to devise a piece of theatre and to co-create a set of outcomes and recommendations for the future of the project.
The group created their own manifesto to guide the process:
"We are a group of diverse women. We are a foundation for each other to lean on. We are courageous, explorers, fierce, powerful, creative women. We are inclusive. We believe in raising our voices for the voiceless We believe in unity and individuality. We believe women are dedicated, resilient, beautiful and loving. Women are leaders. We want to empower other women to be independent and free To value and respect themselves We want to feel our power and know our worth."
Through the 12 week process LUNA created “So, you think it’s a piece of cake?” a collection of scenes, songs and movement presented at New Diorama Theatre in May 2022. This piece explores notions of power, control, and care and the struggles and joy of creating our own path in life.
