We had a research and development day on Thursday 14th August 2014 where we read all the stories we had gathered and explored the themes that many of the stories had in common as well as identifying what made each story so unique. Reading each story was as we went on a journey with the woman that told the story and we were incredibly moved by the honesty and bravery in each story. After reading the stories we spent a long time discussing how we could make a performance event that would stay true to these stories and to make the women we worked with proud. By the end of the day we had the beginnings of some very exciting ideas that we can’t wait to share with you. Patricia Suarez.
