Talk You Me

When language is lost and new meanings sought, English becomes the second language and our human language is revived in an experimentation of movement, lyrics, rhythm and stories.

Brunswick Women’s Theatre aims to provide a supportive, creative environment for all women, particularly women from Non-English Speaking backgrounds and other under represented groups, to explore the richness of their own lives through the use of theatre skills, with the aim of developing empowerment through increased self esteem, enhanced social networks and a greater understanding of the personal and collective experiences of women. And through the fruition of these processes, to provide the community with performances that are not only expressive of the women in the group, but also of a high artistic quality.

The Intent of The Brunswick Women’s Theatre: There is no process of audition in BWT and performances do not rely on talent, but on the importance of the story to the group and the broader community. BWT is not a fixed group. With every new project women are sourced through community networking, assisting women from marginalised communities to enhance self esteem and relieve experiences of social isolation. Through public performances, Brunswick Women’s Theatre successfully promotes community understanding of such issues as displacement, trauma, discrimination and survival for culturally and linguistically diverse women.
