5 Ways To Celebrate International Women’s Day at Omnibus Theatre All Month Long
ONE. The Seven Ages of Woman.
Kicking off March is the final leg of the SHE tour (7-12 Mar) – an enthralling new play inspired by “The Seven Ages of Man” speech in Shakespeare’s As You Like It. This powerful play charts women’s experiences across a lifetime in “an eloquent mediation on life” (The Guardian). SHE offers a poignant analysis of the human condition that ultimately celebrates the indefatigability of the human spirit. This is a must-see for anyone interested in clever contemporary adaptations of familiar works and women’s experiences.
SHE will be performed at Omnibus Theatre on 7-12 Mar. Find out more here→

FOUR. IMMERSIVE ART.
This month our Café Bar becomes the home of Sister Octopi. This unique immersive installation is the result of a long-distance collaboration between two talented artists and cousins: Dubai-based Natalya Konforti and Justine Formentelli resident in London.
Sister Octopi is a mesmerizing exploration of identity, belonging, and adaptation, but it is also a tribute to the strength and resilience of sisterhood in the face of loss and tragedy. The installation takes the form of suspended scrolls, which invite you to wander along tentacular detours and become fully immersed in a world of connections.
The exhibition is will be open to the public in our Café Bar and throughout the building during March (7-29 Mar). Find out more here →
