Women in the World
This is a 10 minute performance piece inspired by the book "Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Around the World" by Nicholas D. Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn. Multi-media, song, and story are used to celebrate contemporary women from all over the world who are facilitating amazing transformations "in the world".
Below is the video of the first performance of this particular arrangement, (not the greatest performance-due in part to no prior sound check), performed at a One Billion Rising event. BUT still, I believe it is strong and moving. .. so ENJOY!!!
