Collectiva Inanna

Collectiva Inanna #3

Seeing Red

We are four women working together to produce a performance piece that explores physical, mental and social displacement. We are focusing on what we know: womanhood. We are borrowing from what we are: writers. We are utilizing what we have: poems and stories. Time and space won’t permit us to share on stage the thousands of pages we have collectively written and published about identity, migration, love, family and the myriad other things that shape us…. And so we will begin to share some of them here.

This is a recording of Collectiva Innana co-founder Manuella Mavromichalis performing her poem “Red,” which explores why she doesn’t want to cross her legs anymore.
