Tonight we will tell the stories of women*s realities. True experiences as a migrant working-class woman and a single mom shape her artistic practice, rooting her work in feminism and anti-discriminatory praxis, with the topics of women*s rights, trauma, healing, migration, and anti-capitalism. She experiments with collective action such as knitting, cooking, singing, and ritual as an activist practice and explores their potential for empowerment and political activation in everyday life.
