Just Not That Woman: A Magic Act All Around

“Polls were decisive. The election was to be a coronation. To celebrate, a party was held beneath a glass ceiling—and I was there. But a chasm erupted between expectation and reality.”

Charting experiences of female leaders globally, award-winning Australian artist, Ali Kennedy Scott asks… what’s it gonna take to kick inequality to the curb?

A play with magic and multi-media, inspired by interviews with scientists, psychologists, and politicians.

What’s a Fringe festival without a little political show?  Just Not That Woman showcased last year’s US election via television and YouTube snippets, highlighting the fact that “magic” came into play for how Hillary Clinton’s fate turned out.

Writer and performer Ali Kennedy-Scott manages to draw and maintain attention, making the show an interactive experience, and she does so successfully you can’t help but appreciate the work – touchy and potentially draining as the subject is -well, depends which side of the political spectrum you’re on.

Just Not That Woman will hopefully make people think more on consequences of their actions or non-actions.  Not just a political show, it is a tap into one’s self awareness.

The 33nd Vancouver Fringe Festival and its other 100 shows continues until September 17, 2017.  For show locations and times, Download the 2017 program guide, and get tickets to Just Not That Woman’s remaining performances!
