A VOICE OF ONE’S OWN

Friday, August 26, 2022

 “A Voice of One’s Own” is a music drama for four voices and electronics with music by Amanda Martikainen and libretto by Shannon Murray and Elizabeth Doss.

Inspired by the writings of Virginia Woolf and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, the narrative follows Aurora and her estranged mother, Maria, in their struggles against a world that seeks to erase them and their dreams.

With a core team of women, we hope to encourage other women to find their unique voice.

Run time: approx. 45mins
