"Swimming Upstream ... is the poetic equivalent of a breached levee. What begins as a flood of raw human emotion becomes a source of healing, transcendence and new beginnings." - The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, November 2008
$15 Student tickets available in person or over the phone only.
V-Day and Ashé Cultural Arts Center pay tribute to the women of New Orleans and the Gulf South. Written by 16 New Orleans’ women, Swimming Upstream is a powerful theatrical production that tells the raw and soulful stories of women who lived through Hurricanes Katrina and Rita with grace, rage and great resiliency, punctuated by a flair for story telling, humor and music that comes from being New Orleanian. SWIMMING UPSTREAM is A Testimony, A Prayer, A Hallelujah, An Incantation. The performance will feature the full New Orleanian cast of Anne-Liese Juge Fox, Karen-kaia Livers, Troi Bechet, Asali DeVan Ecclesiastes and Susan Wentz and singers, Michaela Harrison and Leslie Blackshear Smith.
There will be a talk back after the show with Eve Ensler, V-Day founder and the cast of the show.
