‘Naija Woman Talk True’: the truth is in the word. What does it mean to be a woman in Nigeria today? This exclusively female ensemble reveals what is otherwise concealed: discrimination, domestic violence, rape, female circumcision. The performance celebrates women breaking an enforced culture of silence and questioning the status quo – ‘Naija Woman Talk True’ radiates a mood that transcends generations and goes beyond gender and national boundaries. ‘HEAR WORD!’ calls loudly for mutual empowerment and global solidarity.

PRESS REVIEWS

„Triumphant and powerful! After seeing “Hear Word”, I spent the day texting friends, urging them to get tickets to this powerful, life-affirming show. These women, and what they have to communicate, are not to be missed. Friend, go see this show.” – The Theater Mirror

 

„Written and directed by Ifeoma Fafunwa, “Hear Word!” is agitprop theater of an exceptionally vital order. A combination of song, dance, sketches and soliloquies, this enlivening production traces the injustices under which Nigerian women live, before turning into a jubilant repudiation of misogyny.“ - The New York Times


„Could scarcely be more timely. A call for female solidarity and empowerment.” – The Boston Globe
