Roles 4 Women is an independent Newfoundland based production company, now in their tenth year. R4W produce timely, challenging and experimental theatre and performance work featuring strong women’s voices. Annual programming includes creative workshops, multi-media and online performances and experiments, improvisation sessions, public readings and live theatre performances. R4W are committed to developing new and innovative scripts and creating unique theatrical events such as the multi-media series "Experiments in Performance" and the upcoming "Trixxxiefest".
Roles 4 Women was founded in 2005 by multi-media artists Liz Solo and Jenny Naish. The duo have been producing theatre and related performance events, workshops and media experiments ever since. They now share office and studio space with the very generous Black Bag Media Collective in downtown St. John's. In 2014 R4W have been focusing their energy on creating inventive and exciting live performance events that incorporate multiple formats and engage the community at large.
Most recently they produced TrixxxieFest June 12 - 15, 2014 - a weekend festival of women fronted acts. Plans are also in the works for ten year anniversary celebrations coming up in 2015.
