Three Ladies

Edmonton Fringe Theatre

In her new play Three Ladies, Edmonton-based dramatist and poet Lady Vanessa Cardona uses monologue, ceremony, poetry, hip-hop and traditional Colombian dance to tell the story of how her life’s most traumatic events — sexual violence and civil war — impacted her sense of identity. More than simply a story of struggle, Three Ladies uses diverse modes of story-telling in combination with unflinching, gritty, vulnerable performance to explore–and ultimately celebrate–her healing journey, and the possibilities of healing that exist in all human beings. Three Ladies is a play in which every word, poem, gesture and intention suggests that it is possible to re-claim the power of one’s personal narrative even in the face of complex legacies of trauma and violence.
