Meiningens to present The Vagina Monologues
Posted by Judy Korn on Thursday, Feb. 11, 2010
Meiningens, the University of Minnesota, Morris’s student theatre organization, is proud to reintroduce, after a three-year hiatus, The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler. Performances will be held on Thursday and Saturday, February 18 and 20, 2010, at 7:30 p.m. in the Proscenium Theatre in Humanities Fine Arts (HFA) on the Morris campus.
The Vagina Monologues are an element of V-Day, a worldwide movement to end violence against women and girls. The monologues explore empowerment and individuality.
Student director Hayley Saccomano ’10, Buffalo, says, “I’ve been working with an all-female cast to capture the essence of what it means to be a woman and to create a new interpretation of the production.”
No admission will be charged for the performances, but free will donations will be accepted and are encouraged. Donations will benefit Morris Someplace Safe.
Following the performances, held in conjunction with Pride Week, a reception will be held in the HFA Galley. Currently showing is The Other F-Word, an exhibition by Jess Larson, associate professor of studio art, that explores feminism’s impact on contemporary artmaking and highlights feminism’s positive and empowering aspects.
