Perfectly Imperfect Women
Multi-award-winning storyteller Danyah Miller explores what drives us to want to live perfect lives as mothers, daughters, wives, sisters, bread-winners.
What makes us want to be perfect?
What is so bad about imperfection anyway? This is a theatrical storytelling show with a dash of ‘stand-up’ thrown in. It’s universal and archetypal whilst also being personal, as Danyah searches for a richer understanding of perfection and what it means to accept imperfection in order to connect more deeply to her female line.
The show examines the often complex relationship between mothers and daughters and the challenge of discovering you may have more in common with your female ancestors than you care to admit.
Here we take a look in the mirror of five generations of women in one family, beginning with Danyah’s Great-Grandmother.
