365 Women a Year Project for World Theatre Day 2015 with NITE Corp—Friday 27 March 2015
The New International Theatre Experience (NITE) presents a program of talks, readings, and presentations to celebrate World Theatre Day 2015 livestreaming on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Friday 27 March.
The program includes presentations of plays from the 365 Women a Year project which is an international playwriting group that empowers female playwrights to tell the stories of historical women who have been hiding in the shadows of history for too long. The project’s goal is to write women of the past back into the social consciousness, as well as empower and promote female playwrights around the world.

Izar Productions in New York will have a workshop reading performance of the following play: A Lucid Dream by Begonya Plaza, about Evita Perón and Dolores Ibarruri.
Evita Perón, Argentina's leading political figure of the late 1940's, and Dolores Ibarruri, known as La Pasionaria, a Spanish Republican, communist leader of the Spanish Civil War, meet in that kind of river Styx, the boundary between earth and the underworld. These historical heroines are confronted to ponder the mystery of their existence under the prism of immortality and for the sake of eternal wakeful peace.
