UNHEARD [outloud]

LFL - UNHEARD [outloud]

UNHEARD [outloud]

JULY 13-23, 2017
The Clifton Center
Louisville, KY

Uplifting UNHEARD voices for 15 years, LFL presents a festival of original works, collaborations, workshops, music and more.

Area artists and organizations have been invited to share the stage with Lilith originals and revivals in celebration of our fifteen-year mission of lifting up unheard voices by exploring history and today through women’s perspectives.

Additional LFL contributions to UNHEARD [outloud] will be a revival of one of LFL’s first originally-devised work, Crossing Mountains; Defining Infinity, devised by Co-Artistic Director Trina Fischer in collaboration with other company members; and community-based workshops that will highlight LFL’s work with children and youth; with Spanish-speaking communities; and that will explore community-wide concerns. Fischer created a short version of this work while at Northwestern University and is eager to revisit and expand this important work about the spectrums of gender and sexual orientation.

I’m Wearing My Own Clothes! by Nancy Gall-Clayton,
the first script LFL has commissioned in its fifteen year history

LFL has commissioned a brand new script by Nancy Gall-Clayton, I’m Wearing My Own Clothes!, inspired by Mary Edwards Walker (1832-1919), a surgeon for the Union during the Civil War. Walker remains the only woman awarded the Medal of Honor. She earned her medical degree at 22, wore trousers at her wedding, in surgery, and everywhere else, finding corsets and hoop skirts impractical and unhygienic. She was arrested numerous times for “wearing men’s clothes.” She also advocated for voting rights for women and equality in marriage and the workplace. She lectured on both sides of the Atlantic and frequently lobbied in Washington, D.C., and Albany, New York. The story of Dr. Walker is one that LFL is excited to explore! 


Adanma Onyedike Barton
Lost and Found

Adanma Onyedike Barton is proud to present her solo show Lost & Found at UNHEARD [outloud]! Society dictates that women should aspire to marriage and children, but can one find happiness if one of those goals can’t be met? Lost and Found navigates the emotional terrain of recurrent miscarriage. The 45 minute production will investigate Women’s Reproductive Health and overcoming grief. Too many women feel the need to be silent about their loss. May Lost and Found be the spark that helps other women find their tribe.

Pandora Productions
Still I Rise! A Cabaret of Songs by the Women of Broadway

Pandora Productions is pleased to join Looking for Lilith for her anniversary season to present songs from our most prolific women composers of Broadway. You’ll be surprised and delighted as we weave the stories of women, by women that will leave you thrilled and uplifted, inspired and proud.

Resonant Light Theatre Project
Look Me in the Eye
Resonant Light Theater Project (Ben Gierhart and Kelsey Thompson) aims to create and/or produce theater that illuminates the human experience and amplifies unheard voices. Look Me in the Eye is their first piece and will serve as a sharp examination of the issue of consent that will be told in unexpected but nonetheless revelatory ways. A diverse ensemble will guide the audience through a variety of emotions by way of dramatic scenes, comedic skits and personal monologues.

Additional guests and programming for UNHEARD [outloud] will be announced in the coming months.
