Who controls the narrative? What stories are we missing? What would happen in a world where those stories were told?

Artemisia's new program She Was revives past and little-known stories of women, celebrating the storytellers among us today who are keeping their legacies and influences alive. These stories are sung to life with a mix of folkloric vocal traditions and arranged/composed music created by our group and five newly commissioned works by living female composers: Kyong Mee Choi, Hope Littwin, Rochelle Rice, Jess Godwin, and Jori Pilcher. To creatively accentuate the power of voice in multiple respects, we will pair our group’s live music performance with elements of sound design using recorded interviews, archival footage, and devised writing. We will blend this with a theatrical and staged narrative, featuring animations from Anne Beal, in a visceral inquiry into our past, present, and future.

Chicago-based vocal trio Artemisia (Diana Lawrence, Alexandra Olsavsky, Kaitlin Foley) harnesses the power of the female voice to tell stories through the vocal traditions of the world.
