A Workshop Production at the Hampton Opera Center
Created and performed by Nikki Weaver
Directed by Gretchen Corbett

In October 2015, Nikki Weaver sent a letter to 60 women - some she knew and some she didn’t - requesting a piece of fabric and an explanation of its sentimental value. The result is Weaving Women Together, an entirely female-driven piece about the loss of Weaver’s mother and how she has collected her in other women, and a magic skirt made entirely of the tales - and fabric - shared by these women.
February 28 - March 25
