RESETTING THE FEMINIST DEFAULT
ReVamp Collective is a feminist-centric theatre company. We strive to create opportunities for women in all aspects of the theatrical process, give a voice to the silenced and create theatre for social change.
By developing inspiring work that investigates societal constructs, our aim is to cultivate theatrical discourse, while producing established contemporary plays, works by new and emerging artists and collective devised theatre. Both in relation to the stage and in our society, our goal is to reset the feminist default and to explore the direction of the work when women and men, both cisgender and transgender, as well as genderqueer, collaborate on an equal playing ground.
WHAT IS FEMINISM?
Feminism is a movement that advocates for gender equality. The goal of feminism is for all people to be treated equally. What differentiates feminism from other social movements is the focus on gender and how it relates to the oppression of women, as well as people with non-binary gender identities and expressions.
WHAT IS INTERSECTIONALITY?
Intersectionality is the view that women experience oppression in varying configurations and in varying degrees of intensity. Cultural patterns fo oppression are no only interrelated, but are bound together and influenced by the intersectional systems of society. Examples of this include gender, race, class, ability, and ethnicity.
