Join Women on the Verge for the UK Premier of Emilie LeBel's new work, Blue of the Distance commissioned with the support of the Canada Council. The text "explores themes of migration, displacement, and the experience of women caught in this turmoil". Emilie has set found and collected words from over 140 news articles describing events of displacement, in particular, words to describe women. These words were then mapped onto an essay by Rebecca Solnit, Blue of Distance, using erasure techniques on her text. Women on the Verge was formed in 2016 by American soprano Emily Martin, Canadian soprano Elizabeth McDonald and Canadian pianist Kathryn Tremills. The Trio is connected by their mutual desire to tell the stories of women’s lives both past and present - the stories of celebration and condemnation, motherhood and loss, marriage and betrayal, breakdowns and breakups...the stories of every woman.

Free and open to the public.
