“There’s a lion woman waiting to tear out of the sheepskin I’m wearing.”

Lion Womxn is a collage of monologue, movement, song, dance, and poetry. Created by the young women and non-binary youth artists of The AMY Project’s 2018 Theatre Program, this show explores themes of empowerment, resilience, self and community care, and the relationships with the mothers, grandmothers, and lion women in our lives.
