Starting January 17, experience Nikki Weaver's journey of discovery and transformation as she uncovers pieces of her own past and present through a community of other women.

In October 2015, Nikki 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 her mother and how Nikki has collected her in other women, and a magic skirt made entirely of the tales - and fabric - shared by these women.

Directed by Gretchen Corbett, this production of Weaving Women Together is a labor of love in process. While each performance will be fully staged, the show may change from night to night over the limited, two-week run. 

To see more photos and to read about the process in Nikki’s own words, visit www.portlandplayhouse.org/weavingwomen and like the Facebook event page.
