9 Parts of Desire
March 7, 2020 - April 19, 2020
The Ellyn Bye Studio | Portland Center Stage
An intimate and complex portrait of the extraordinary (and ordinary) lives of nine Iraqi women, this remarkable solo work offers a meditation on what it means to be a woman in a country overshadowed by war. Based on her interviews with real women during the reign and fall of Saddam Hussein, Heather Raffo weaves nine utterly distinct voices into a tapestry of humanity, love, and endurance in the face of oppression.
