Event description

Description

FEM NOIR is an original multi-media presentation by feminist artist/wrier Sheila Norgate. The show title comes from Film Noir, a genre of movie created post WW2, which was marked by a mood of pessimism, fatalism, and menace - especially when it came to women. Rather like today only with hats and gloves.

The show runs 90 minutes without intermission.

FEM NOIR covers the 2,500-year history of sexism going back as far as Hippocrates. Along the way, Norgate dismantles the notion of HISTERIA (sic), and shows how misogyny manifests in Canada today in the form of violence against women.

Even though the subject matter is dark, Norgate brings along her signature wry and sardonic sense of humour and sprinkles it liberally throughout the show.
