Each woman brought their own stories to the mix for inVISIBLE, a collection of stories billed as less of a theatre production and more of a happening or experience.
Artistic director Kate Newby calls inVISIBLE “an intimate slumber party, a joyful gathering of collective energy, a raw, vulnerable, complex and liberating happening.” This 90-minute happening will take place from Oct. 12 through 21 at the University of Calgary’s Matthews Theatre in Craigie Hall and will feature 13 performers, including Makambe K. Simamba, who has been with the project since its inception in the fall of 2016.
