What does it mean when life lets you down? Is it possible to start over? Telling our stories in our own words. If we can do it, you can too!
What does it mean when life lets you down? Is it possible to start over “Lockdown has opened up new inner and outer spaces for these women to explore and nurture our emotions, our creativity and our magnificence!” Diverse women sharing in their own words. Telling stories of emerging from challenges, discovering fresh possibilities and new beginnings. If we can do it, you can too!
This event is brought to you by Moriam Grillo of The Butterfly Project and is a sharing of the creative writing developed last Summer. Over the Summer of 2020 participants of the Butterfly Project published a series of poems in a book. Each chapter in the book speaks of a different stage of their journey as a voyage of self-discovery and ‘finding the way back’ to a truer sense of self.
There will also be the opportunity to hear from the authors after the performance and be inspired by their stories, journeys and life lessons.
Running Time: 60 minutes
Age Guidance: 16+

The Hat Factory
The Hat Factory is Luton's leading arts and entertainment venue featuring live music, club nights, theatre, dance, films, children's activities, workshops, classes and gallery exhibitions.
It's a centre of artistic excellence set within a vibrant urban environment. It offers the young and the young at heart the chance to engage with the arts, to be inspired by the UK’s leading arts practitioners, and to develop artistic skills and confidence.
The Hat Factory is a combined arts venue in the centre of Luton. It opened in 2003 and since then has been the area’s main provider of contemporary theatre, dance and music. We work with both emerging and proven producers and artists, through programming, engagement programmes and our Associate Artist scheme. Their music programming is vibrant, offering an eclectic portfolio of high quality artists from the worlds of jazz, blues, folk, world music, indie and hip hop. Complementing their own programming, they welcome local/regional promoters to the venue, broadening their music offer and at the same time supporting young promoters and their businesses. They programme contemporary theatre and dance with a focus on fresh, new and relevant stories from both established and emerging touring companies who are making high quality work in the UK. They’ve programmed companies like Earthfall, Chickenshed, New International Encounter (NIE), Trestle, Menagerie, Eastern Angles, Atma, State of Emergency, 30 Bird, Tavaziva, Analogue and Jean Abreu Dance to name but a few.
The Hat Factory has flexible spaces of various sizes to suit every need. See Venue Hire for more information.
