WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Hear Word! Naija Woman Talk True is inspired by multigenerational stories of inequality and transformation. The piece is directed by Ifeoma Fafunwa, the founder and director of iOpenEye, a Nigerian production company driving social change through performance art. Combining song and dance with intimate portraits of resilience and resistance, Hear Word! grapples with the issues that affect the lives of women across Nigeria — the factors that limit their potential for independence, leadership, and meaningful contribution in society, as well as the ways they have moved beyond established barriers to achieve meaningful solutions.
