Rayanne Haines presents She, the River on March 19th at 7:30pm at the Royal Alberta Museum, Amiskwaciy Theatre (9810 103A Ave).

She, the River is a multicultural, multigenerational and multilingual production showcasing the voices of some of Edmonton’s most celebrated female poets and storytellers.
For one commanding evening these nine powerhouses of varying ages, cultural backgrounds, and sexual orientation join together on stage for an evening of poetry that reflects their upbringing, identity stories, and family journeys.
Through weaving their journeys together, they invite you to celebrate and take joy in who we are as women and as humans.

Artists:
Titilope is the amen to the prayers of women with one hand reaching for God, the other, right here, doing the work.
Anna Marie Sewell is the silence between two rivers.
Rayanne Haines is the breath and the voice of the witches you burned at the stake.
Pierrette Requier is a daughter of the wind, "une fille du vent"
Laurie MacFayden writes, rhymes, paints, dances and dreams by the North Saskatchewan River.
Iman Mersal is part of Egypt's 90s generation and regarded as one of the most interesting voices in contemporary Arabic poetry.
