The Nora Theatre Company’s That’s What She Said (TWSS) program provides an opportunity for regional female-identifying theatrical artists to develop and showcase their work. We support a variety of artistic forms, from operas to political theatre, new plays, performance pieces, storytelling, musicians, and more. We uphold a pillar of the Nora’s mission to promote the feminine perspective by supporting artists who are committed to exploring their voice and striving to create public performance pieces. We welcome bold ideas and innovative forms of performance.
A TWSS event provides an opportunity for the artist to showcase their work with the aid of The Nora’s resources, expertise and performance/rehearsal space at Central Square Theater. We will work with the artist to provide a free performance in the form of a reading, panel, or other type of production based upon the given project, along with workshopping and development as needed and within our capacity.
The Nora also strongly encourages female-identifying artists of color, LGBTQ+, and diverse viewpoints to apply for this program. We invite proposals for the development and enrichment of new works and also for the expansion of already established projects.
