I'm Woman

Content by Chris Hislop

In this empowering new show, writer/performer Ana Daud explores what it means to lose one’s childhood innocence too soon, the relationship between children and parents, men and women, and things we often think but we are too afraid to speak about, even with our closest friends, and offers a new message in a #metoo era.

I’m Woman is a true story of an immigrant girl who grew up without her parents and was sexually abused in childhood. This experience led to hard consequences and battles to overcome (anorexia, bulimia, fake modelling, abortion and prostitution). In order to leave the past behind and begin a new life stronger than ever before, the main character needs to face her biggest fears.

In a modern, technological world, where we often hide behind masks and feel alone in our personal battles, this show has a mission to connect people, to inspire and empower through vulnerability, sincerity and sharing, as well as give more appreciation of one’s opportunities in life, deeper relationships, and the beauty of being ourselves, accepting ourselves with all our demons and angels.

Directed by Dmitry Acrish, this hard-hitting true story merges facts, powerful memories and even notes of humour to explore the truth and ramifications of Ana’s story. As a prominent contemporary theatre director, Acrish has become famous for his ability to take audiences on inspirational and even humorous journeys over the past six years.

Ana Daud trained and received her Masters from the Boris Schiukin Theatre Institute in Moscow. Ana played Lena in Spiral, released on Canal+ and the BBC; and Bogdana in Quadras, released on M6.

Director Dmitry Acrișh studied theatre direction at GITIS, a theatre school in Moscow. Last year, he directed

God is on his bike at the Theatre dramatic Bereznikov, King Lir at the Theatre dramatic Kurgan, and 13938 at Theatre Ugol. He received the Grand prix la Festival International de teatru Tvoi Shans in 2015 for his production of Mama, an adaptation of Maxim Gorky’s Vassa Jeleznova.
