"An engrossing and virtuosic performance."—Toronto Star
Directed by Amy Nostbakken
A two-woman show acclaimed for its raw honesty and insightful portrayal of womanhood, Mouthpiece follows a woman over the course of a day, as she struggles to find her voice and contend with the formidable shadow cast by her mother. The engrossing work is co-created and performed by the Toronto-based Quote Unquote Collective, the performers seamlessly integrating sung a cappella passages with spoken text and moments of extraordinary physicality. "A smart show, beautifully put together and performed, and one that speaks up for all the women who daily bite their tongues" (The Guardian, London).
Please note: This performance contains flashing lights, fog, profanity, and loud sounds. There will be no late seating nor intermission.
Approximate run time: 65 minutes, without intermission.
This event is part of the 2018/19 Berkeley RADICAL programming initiative, Women's Work. Learn more and watch videos >
