Words of women wound through history and myth. Women who are wives, who do not know what they have and hold. Women who are not warriors but are no less at war. SLANT is narrative as condemnation and creation myth. Painting lip or painted lip or Freudian slip or lip service? Pulling threads of womanhood from the torn edges of myth, SLANT puts tongues in the mouths of Persephone, Bluebeard's fourth wife, and the biblical Delilah. [EM]BEDDED/BODIED is a queer/trans love story embedded in the heart of an ancient empire. The latest incarnation of a story that first came into being as a 13th Century French chanson de geste Yde et Olive', it tells the story of Yde, a trans knight who rises to the highest possible chivalric glory in the ranks of the Roman Empire, through the voice of the Emperor's daughter, Olive, who falls fiercely in love with him.

written by Hannah Rose Owen-Wright & Maria Ji. After their gorgeous performances at TAPAC, the individual pieces SLANT by Maria Ji (created under the mentorship of Natalie Hugill) and [EM]BEDDED/BODIED by Hannah Rose Owen-Wright (created under the mentorship of Raewyn Alexander) have been re-fitted for the Auckland Fringe, and are being presented under the new banner of VOW at Ironbar on K Rd.
