Week #3: January 29 – 31

Microscopes and Megaphones

Presented by Whisper to a Scream: a feminist performance art collective
Directed by Maura Haas

It is the little things.
Sweat the small stuff.
The devil indeed is in the detail.

Microscopes & Megaphones is a collaborative project that uses dance, theatre, audio and visual arts to explore “the problem that has no name” plaguing the modern woman today. With progress made in reproductive choice, education, the workplace and at home, the modern Western woman’s oppression manifests itself through subtlety, innuendo and the places you least expect.

Offbeat and stripped down, Microscopes & Megaphones explores slutty fat girls, an oral sex memoir, baking as foreplay, the power of punctuations, the hypocrisy of language, degrees of touch and why Mom is the sexiest woman you know.

Featuring works from new and established artists.

Its mission is to use art, awareness, action and advocacy to help eradicate the barriers that keep women from being recognized as full, autonomous human beings in society. Whisper to a Scream is proud to make its debut with Cleveland Public Theatre.
