Earlier in the year we had the privilege of hosting SOME COMPANY, directed by Rachel Chant with a vast production and design team of 9 women (and Nate Edmondson...) It was a wonderful season of a wonderful play and we had a theatre full of creative and inspiring women delivering a gentle story of a family in flux in a beautiful way.
Throughout 2016 KXT exceeded gender parity. By the end of the year we will have played host to:
- 17 producers who happen to be women
- 11 directors who happen to be women
- 10 writers who happen to be women
Our artistic team is one half woman, so...of course
There are a stack of amazing women making amazing work. We've met some of them, certainly heard about a lot more. And we wanted to set some time aside at KXT to celebrate this work. And to make sure that their work was part of a broader conversation: let's make note of the fact that this particular amazing show was delivered by and amazing team of women. Or lead be this particular brilliant woman.
We'd like to make sure that we're recognising the talented women who are making the work.
We'd like to have a conversation about the empowerment and celebration of women in the arts. We'd like us all to set targets.
We shouldn't have to.
