About the event

“MOMologues” is a one-evening, live performance based on the newly  released book, “The Momologue Collective: An Anthology by  Self-Identifying Mothers”. The collection of anonymous stories about  motherhood were gathered by multidisciplinary artist of Homer, Brianna  Allen. “MOMologues” is produced and directed by Carey Seward of Seward  Follies Production Company.

“MOMologues” debuts in Fairbanks, in conjunction with MOTHER,  a visual arts exhibition by seven Alaska artist mothers, presented by  The Bear Gallery for the month of September including Brianna Allen,  Carla Cope, Amy Komar (Homer), Myesha Callahan Freet (Chugiak), Somer  Hahm (Fairbanks), Wooshkindein Da.Aat Lily Hope (Juneau), and Amy  Meissner (Anchorage). Why are the best stories about motherhood told in  whispers? Witness confessions become communal anthems as one artist’s  social art practice shatters the rose-colored “Mother and Child” veneer  society prefers and protects. These true, anonymous stories about  motherhood, contributed by over 100 self-identifying mothers, has been  described by non-mothers as “eye-opening” and “a straight-up  education.” After the performance, creator Brianna Allen offers a short  artist talk about the ongoing project. Books will be available for sale  at the performance as well as at the Fairbanks Arts Gift Shop in tandem  with the visual arts exhibit MOTHERMOTHER was made  possible with funding by Rasmuson Foundation through the Harper Arts  Touring Fund, and is administered by the Alaska State Council on the  Arts and Fairbanks Arts Association.
