    Hello all member of ICWP,

    I would like to info about my women playwrights event. Thanks for your attention and feel free to join our discussion.

    Indonesia’s Women On Stage presents Asian and Australian Women on Dramatic Reading and Culture as part of Cambodian Living Arts - ASEF’s Culture Over Coffee Programme.

     Women On Stage, supported by Cambodian Living Arts (CLA) and the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF), is bringing together playwrights from the Philippines, Australia, and Indonesia for an Asian and Australian Women on Dramatic Reading and Culture as part of CLA’s Culture Over Coffee Programme.

    The artist will be sharing excerpts of their plays and discussing their work, seeking to understand and acknowledge both commonalities and different perspective writing as well as explore the possibility of future collaborations and performance of rach others' work. There is no universal theater - despite many plays being able to reach beyond the context in which they were written, oftentimes works are initially written for specific audiences with specific understandings of the world and specific experience. This event gives the six playwrights invited to present an opportunity to share their work and test it with an audience, not from their home countries.

    Women on Stage/ Culture over Coffee event brings together artists with. Variety of backgrounds including emerging writers and more experienced performers and theater directors presenting work that reflects the different world they live in and raising questions.

    From Indonesia, Herlina Syarifudin, artistic director of Keluarga Teater and founder of Women On Stage, is an experienced playwright, performer, educator, and director. She presents her work “ Namaku Nama” - “ My Name is Name” which intertwines Javanese cultural traditions and mythologies that have a huge impact on women. This play focuses on the inter-generational suffering of women from grandmother to mother to daughter. Also from Indonesia, based in Kendal, Central Java, emerging writer and arts activist and educator, Venny Zega presents her new work “Lontong Opor” traditional Indonesian curry with rice cakes) about "mudik" which means going back to one's birthplace as an Indonesian Muslim culture during the Islamic holiday, Eid al-Fitri ( which occurs at the end of the fasting month). She explores how the pandemic has drastically affected the situation and how people adapted their traditions to meet their needs.

    Maria Theresa C. Belleza cultural worker and freelance production manager and secretary-general of Women Playwrights International - Philippines and experienced mentor who flies between Negors and Manilla as well as other places in the Philippines, nurturing and supporting emerging artists. She was the Head of the Secretariat of the 6th Women Playwright International Festival in the Philippines in 2003. Her work has been presented three times at Women Playwrights International in South Africa, Chile, and one of her works will be fully produced at the Women Playwrights International in Montreal later this year. She will present her work “The Mango Tree”, a work in progress, that relates the story of worker ants that live in a colony in a mango tree reflecting on collective consciousness by following orders. It was originally written Phillipino and titled “ Ang Pun ng Mannga” and first read at the Cultural Centre of the Philippines Women’s Month in March 2019.

    The event is proud to host two new emerging writers and directors from Performance Laboratory Incorporated on the island of Negros Occidental, in the Philippines which is about 700 km from Manilla. Noel Pahyupan, is presenting “End Scene” where a director and playwright's personal and professional lives get intertwined, is Negros based actor, director, emerging playwright, and a member of the Performance Laboratory. This work is the outcome of. Fellowship award with CCP Virgin Labfest Writing Fellowship 15 2019 at the Cultural Centre of the Philippines. 

    Venisa Buenflor is a cultural worker and Negors based Theater actor, director, and emerging playwright and member of the Performance Laboratory Incorporated. She presents a new play “Ang Biyah Ni Gregory” ( The Journey of Gregory) taking up the theme of young people and their concerns as two siblings reflect on their triumphs, expectations, fiascos, and regrets and the choices they made. 

     From Australia, but based in Indonesia for 30 years and a director/ actor/ traditional dancer, Kerensa Dewantoro “Jengkol: Jangan Jengkel”,( Jengkol{local food}: don’t be mad.) in her excerpts is exploring the issues of misinterpretations and cultural misunderstandings within different versions of Islam; and the stereotypes moving in both directions between Islam and the West. She will also be raising questions regarding identity and who has the right to write about issues

    The importance of gatherings such these for networking amongst artists is evident by the fact that Herlina Syarifudin, Kerensa Dewantoro, and Maria Theresa C. Belleza (Tessa) can connect and meet due to the opportunity presented by WPI International. Herlina Syarifudin and Tessa met at Women Playwrights International Conference (WPIC 2015) in Cape Town, South Africa. It is hoped that this event Culture Over Coffee will lead to more regional connections between artists to showcase their work, reach new audiences and see their work through the eyes of others in the region rather than a euro-centric view of playwrighting.

    New Debut release on August 1st with Next Stage Press of three one act plays for women roles. From publisher:

    “Finding a writer that can not only cross mediums, but also theatrical disciplines is a real treat. Such is the case of actor/writer Joanna Pickering. She’s crafted three plays that capture the essence of some of the dark side of show business. Challenging roles for women all wrapped in three engaging tales—- packed into one acting edition. Aug 1! Only from Next Stage Press!”

    The Trilogy contains:

    Cat and Mouse –  Marcus Meekus is a Hollywood movie director. Jade is bussing tables having just appeared in her first acting role — a tampon advert. When their paths cross, Jade thinks her life will change forever, but both are in for a shock. 

    Sylvie and Sly – Sylvie and Sly tells the tale of an aging actress, who is in denial about her tragic reality, and decides to save a floundering career with the help of a devoted friend and social media. 

    Beach Break – In Beach Break, two young female friends go away to a holiday resort to escape problems at home. It’s only a matter of time before something terrible happens. Something that will have dark and explosive repercussions.

    "I had the great pleasure to direct the premiere zoom reading of Joanna’s play, Sylvie and Sly, and loved working with her and our cast. Joanna has a great voice, impeccable timing, and is a wonderful story teller. I loved all three plays, which cover a wide emotional range. I highly recommend these 3 plays to read, enjoy, use for auditions and scenes, and hope they will have numerous productions." Lorca Peress (Multistages)

    Audience feedback:

    “The overall arc of your plays with regards to human behavior was absolutely masterful”

    "Women behaving as badly as men but with all the devastating consequences"

    “Great social conscious work”

    “The writing has fantastic moral ambiguity, the darkly comic interchanges power the stories, and the relationship forward”

    "Your writing is fierce, complex, nuanced, deep and honestly human. Thank you for your willingness to be messy and real”

    "You express the duality of people and human nature elegantly. You’re not afraid to work in the shadows."
