Description

Have you ever felt so lost in the game of life that you don't really remember who you are? Combining personal stories with physical theatre, vulnerability and ferocity, Ana creates an intimate, poignant and thought-provoking show about womanhood and finding inner strength in a #MeToo era. Where from do you take the bravery to face what you've been avoiding for such long time? Are you able to honour your truth instead of hiding it? A woman rising from ashes to light a flame of love and hope in the hearts of the people.

A must see for everyone - full of raw emotion and thought provoking themes, this show, and Ana, truly touched my heart. Can’t thank Ana enough for her vulnerability and the courage to share her story in such a masterful way, to spread the message of love and needing each other, despite the pain she herself has gone through and that I’m sure so many others, myself included, can relate to. Can’t recommend I’m Woman highly enough - go see it for yourself!

This is the most powerful show that I have ever seen.
Full of vulnerability and true emotions. It is direct and real and I am sure it is about anybody of us. It touched my soul and for sure it will stay there for the rest of my life.
Thank you Ana for your courage to highlight your story and for the lessons that you are sharing with this world! ... and yes! "We simply need each other, guys!" Amazing! Love and Hugs!

If you are looking for a genuinely life changing show, you have to see I'm woman!!! This is my second year attending the Fringe Festival and this show is truly stand out compared to most of the shows on offer. Whilst the comedies and more light hearted shows will make you laugh and entertain you for an hour or so, I'm Woman will be something that has an impact on you for the rest of your life. I almost cried at times because of Ana's vulnerability and emotion whilst acting out all of the struggles she has faced in her life on stage and that is really rare for me! To find a person that is willing put themselves out there and truly reach out to people's hearts with no barriers, is extremely rare and something that doesn't exist much in our society these days. I also think that the message behind I'm Woman is so important for both men and women, as it touches on some of the most pressing problems in society today such as abortion, prostitution and loneliness. As a society we are often unwilling to speak about these issues and to see someone talk about them in such a raw way, is what makes the show so very special. All in all, this show is probably one of the most memorable things I have ever seen in my life and I would honestly say it is essential for everyone to go and see it. I have recommended it to all of my friends already!

Even my mom which does not speak english could feel all the pain and love from the Actress.
It is very hard to explain the feelings during the show, it is just mind-blowing

Unforgettable piece with a suspension that reminds you of all the mistakes which you thought it is not that important. Straight after I have called my Mother to say a big thank you.
And thank you Ana for this incredible perfomance
