Playing Cassio and choreographing the violence in Taffety Punk Theatre Company’s
Riot Grrrls: Othello
The women of Taffety Punk began the Riot Grrrls theatre project as an an activist reaction to the lack of gender parity on DC stages. These all-female productions are a celebration of the strength of women in theatre. Women receive the same training as their male counterparts — including how to fight with swords and daggers — only to be relegated to one or two scenes in most classical plays.
We are so done with that.
