Today marks the opening of the 19th annual Edgy Women festival. In honor of this event we talk with three of the talented ladies involved in the festival during this episode. The director of the festival, and of Studio 303, Miriam Ginestier, lets us in on the history of Edgy Women, it’s goals and what to look out for this year. The festival runs from March 15th-April 1st in various locations around the plateau.
One of the headlining productions, In Succube, was created and is performed by Andréane Leclerc and Holly Gauthier-Frankel, both of whom joined us this week. Holly (a.k.a Miss Sugarpuss) is an actor, signer and burlesque performer. Andréane is a circus and cabaret performer and contortionist. There is no doubt that the collaboration between the two of them will be edgy and deal with femininity.
After the break, Allison reviews Deborah Dunn’s Orlando. The show is currently running at Agora (until Saturday, March 17th) so if you like what you hear you can still catch the show.
Then Jenn reviews Love Death Devil – The Piece by Ben J. Riepe Kopaine, presented at La Chapelle. Unfortunately the run of that show is already over, but if you are intrigued you can listen to last week’s episode (March 8th) to hear our interview with Ben.
Our show from MARCH 15th, 2012
We’ll see you next week!
Allison Burns and Jenn Doan
