 A verbatim fictional play

In Brazil and the UK violence against women and girls is on the rise. Efêmera introduces us to two women with a story to tell. They may have the courage to share it with you, they may not. A powerful, humorous and delicate piece about how to hold on when life falls apart. Performed by Gaël Le Cornec & Rosie MacPherson.

Based on a research by Prof. Cathy Mcllwaine, this play was co-commissioned by Queen Mary University of London, King’s College London, People’s Palace Project, Latin American Women’s Rights Service and CASA Festival with funding from the Economic and Social Research Council.
