About the event

Multi-award-winning storyteller Danyah Miller’s Perfectly Imperfect Women, part of Ovalhouse’s imaginative and innovative Spring Season 2017, has been created to celebrate International Women’s Day 2017 on Wednesday 8th March.

This universal tale tells the story of five generations of women in one family, as it explores what drives us to want to live perfect lives as mothers, daughters, wives, sisters, and bread-winners.

Perfectly Imperfect Women examines the complex relationship between mothers and daughters and the challenge of discovering you may have more in common with your female ancestors than you care to admit.

Join Danyah on her search for a richer understanding of the concept of perfection and what it means to accept imperfection in order to connect more deeply to her female line.

Writer and performer, Danyah Miller, comments, As we began to create this show I realised that I find it really challenging to accept ‘imperfection’, because I’m afraid that this will mean I've failed. I’m not even sure I can accept imperfection as an option. I’ve also discovered that I’m not alone in this…. this idea of ‘being perfect' seems to speak to all the women to whom I’ve chatted about the show. It makes me wonder why we are driven in this way and how ‘perfect’ is different for each of us.
