Women of the world, Addis Adaba, Ethiopia

At the beginning of April Jessie journeyed once again to work in Ethiopia, this time to work with women to create a new dance piece for women empowerment. The work was centred around the main issues of domestic violence, staying silent, [meaning containing emotions and feelings and not being able to express them], fidelity, trust, respect, repression, having a disability and how that effects life and confidence.

Jessie Brett "I wouldn’t have been able to do this project without the financial support of WAI; the money was just enough to cover my expenses during the project."
