Feminist Magic Play "Woman Illusion" in NYC

Genre 
Theatre
Tickets: http://www.womanillusion.com The Woman Illusion by Piper Rasmussen is a playful, wicked gallery of ways to be a woman, from a dressing table to the battlefields of Queen Elizabeth I. A small cast leads a funny, empowering, hour-long adventure through time and space, using magic and theatre techniques to gently unravel the spellbinding everyday performance of femininity. Being the right woman at the right time -- wife or employee, actor or leader -- means performing a constant disappearing act on the parts of yourself that don't fit. Speech and action for, by, and about women often strengthens these disappearing acts. This un-magic is difficult to see without the help of complementary magical distortions. The necessary distortions are performed by award-winning Magic Castle magician Jackson "Jax" Ridd (http://www.jaxridd.com). These sections are friendly and participatory, leading gracefully into performances by a cast of actors performing scenes in styles ranging from ritual to realism. Dates: Monday, September 11, 9:00pm Wednesday, September 13, 6:30pm Thursday, September 14, 9pm Friday, September 15, 6:30pm Saturday, September 16, 5pm Sunday, September 17, 2pm Tickets: http://www.womanillusion.com
