Invisible Womxn aims to bring to the forefront stories of local womxn. Womxn have shaped our city and state from the very beginning yet little mention is made of these brave womxn who were full partners in the bold venture of Seattle’s founders. My aim is also to create a performance event that is a celebration without obscuring our problematic history.”
This version of Invisible Womxn was adapted to the Seattle Center International Fountain for the 2017 Bumbershoot Festival.
Invisible Womxn was created by Alice Gosti with Tess Keesling, Ariana Bird, Alyza DelPan-Monley, Khadijah Lindo, Lydia Shamoun, Sabina Smith-Moreland, Shaina Andres, Lauren Linder, Hazel Morris, Hannah Cavallaro, Ana McElravy, Kelly Goetz, Elizabeth Monsoor, Peter Kohring, Sumaya Mulla-Carrillo, Hannah Rice and The Filthy Fem Corps Marching Band.
