Still We Rise
Fall down seven times, stand up eight – Japanese proverb
Stories of the phenomenal women in our lives who battle against the odds to be themselves and who inspire strength in all of us.
Pegasus Young Company are working in partnership with young people from Oxford’s twin cities to create a new piece of theatre inspired by stories, poetry and song from around the world about what it takes to face your fears and stand up for your rights. It is a tribute to the fearless people everywhere who face injustice and fight back.
Using Maya Angelou’s poem Still I Rise as a starting point for inspiration, as well as stories of Suffrage, the piece will explore democratic rights of women in different cultures.
