Naija Woman Talk True
iOpenEye / American Repertory Theater Ifeoma Fafunwa
Hear Word! is Nigerian pidgin English for ‘Listen and Comply’. In this unflinchingly honest performance, ten of Nigeria’s biggest stars of theatre, film and television come together on stage to tell multi-generational stories of inequality and transformation.
Hear Word! gives an intimate view into the obstacles that Nigerian women face. Stories of domestic violence, of women’s absence from positions of power, of resilience and resistance, of shattering the culture of silence, of overturning the status quo, of abuse, disrespect, bravery, sisterhood and joy.
It’s a life-affirming call for female solidarity and empowerment that will shock you with its frankness, amuse you with its comedy — and galvanise you into action.
‘Hear Word! is agitprop theater of an exceptionally vital order … These are sparks to be fanned into flame. By the end the brightness radiating from its all-female cast has the glare and heat of a raging bonfire.’ The New York Times
