Sunday 8th March is International Women’s Day
“If they try to burn you, may your fire be stronger than theirs”
Pop-up Globe are thrilled to announce the international debut of London’s smash-hit play Emilia by Morgan Lloyd Malcolm to round off our Farewell Auckland season. Directed by Miriama McDowell and featuring an incredible cast and creative company of diverse wāhine to bring the story to life.
We have a double show day of Emilia on Sunday 8th March, International Women’s Day, which is incredible alignment. To celebrate this we have a bit of a different day to the regular weekend planned!
2:00pm Parents & Babies Welcome matinee performance
In a first for Pop-up Globe, this session is open to anyone who wishes to attend, the performance is relaxed and attendees can come and go as they need without worrying about disrupting the performance, all babies are free, although toddlers are required to have a ticket.
Tickets start at $10 for groundlings.
We recommend that the play isn’t suitable for young children, as there are some challenging themes.
5:15 pm Guest panel
In between the two shows on the 8th March, here at Pop-up Globe, we are very excited to be hosting a panel for International Women’s Day! Anyone with a ticket to either the matinee or afternoon performance of Emilia will be more than welcome, and encouraged to join us in this discussion.
Facilitating our panel will be Associate Professor Ella Henry of Auckland, Director of Māori Advancement.
Joining Ella for discussion on the panel will be the author of Emilia, all the way from London, Morgan Lloyd Malcolm
The topic for discussion is “International Women’s Day: acknowledging our similarities, celebrating our difference, through story-telling and art”
More guests to be announce, keep an eye on our social media!
We look forward to seeing you there!
