Other Women is a two woman show focused on interrogating reigning ideas about women as artists, lovers, friends and sisters, and exploring what lies beneath uncomfortable truths, laughter, and tears in the same breath. For the BRIClab Residency, the team will examine and explore how our different genres and writing styles—poetry and playwriting, short stories and novels—are in conversation with each other; much like we are in conversation in our personal lives.
