It hasn’t been a perfect year, I think that we can all agree on that. It’s been a very difficult year for people in the arts, in some cases cataclysmic.
We here at Baggage have watched with great sadness at the closing of venues, artists without incomes and an industry facing a very long and hard recovery.
It is therefore especially wonderful and heartening to have had such a powerful and positive response to the Madwomen Monologues this year, beginning with the submissions (94!), followed by the thrilled and excited directors and capped with the enthusiastic and incredible audition tapes from actors. What a bunch.
We are filming the monologues this year, its not what we would normally want and we are navigating the new waters, but WE ARE DOING IT. The Madwomen Monologues will be presented online as a live stream event and then available on demand. For free.
Thank you Melbourne creative people. Thank you Australian creative people. Thank you to all the creatives of the world, for inspiration online, strength and resilience. We don’t go away, we just re-group and re-imagine and re-create. See you all soon, artists.
