Feminista, Boulder's hottest feminist theater troupe, joins our dream
to that of a global, grassroots uprising which insists that another
world is possible. Vox is dreaming of the 11th commandment: You shall
love nature of which you are a part. Towards that end, we are proud
to announce our newest show in a continuing dream of living in right
relation to the earth, Noasis: Last Call for Water.
whole show focuses on the profusion of water- related issues. Drama,
comedy, spoken word, drumming, videos and the news all speak to the
difference between valuing water and putting a market value on water.
Canadian farmers, Indian dams, Bolivian protests, sustainable energy,
genetic engineering, golf courses and swimming pools in the desert,
and the unraveling terrorism of the Washington oilogarchy fanning the
flames of war are a few of the topics this new show addresses.
The storyline of Noasis spins between two polarized sets: a sacred well
of ancient power and potent wisdom, and a water bar, a local hangout
where all the water is bottled and sold to patrons. The characters shift
back and forth as two conflicting futures are revealed. The present
balances on the tightrope of this polarity. Scarcity and exploitation
or oneness and abundance, oasis or mirage, humanity descending or ascending?
It's up to us to decide.
Vox Feminista is a small band of roving eco-feminist radical performers,
activists, and outcasts who've kept the Boulder-Denver community riled
up with social criticism and analysis for over 12 years. Our mission,
as always, is to comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable.
We shout out from the stage and the streets at this post-Microsoft,
globally monopolized, genetically altered, politically corrupt, chemical,
nuclear, plastic and prosac world we've inherited. Our hope is to plant
memes- idea seeds- to expand the neglected geographies of culture, environment,
and self. Join us in our sacred and profane playfulness as we challenge
the unknown boundaries of our uncertain future.
Water is Precious Flier print.
