Hiru emakume

Three voices bring this exciting feminist poem to life

15 march 2018

Hiru emakume (Tres mujeres) is an exciting poem recited by three voices that examines the subject of maternity. Each voice represents a different way of experiencing it: the woman who focuses her fulfilment on being a mother, the woman who suffers when she is unable to become a mother, and the women who becomes a mother to her dismay.

The American writer and poet Sylvia Plath created this feminist poem to be read out loud. She read it out in 1962 on the BBC, one year before she died. Now, under the direction of Mireia Gabilondo, three actresses have picked up the baton and are bringing her words to life in this new production by the Arriaga Theatre.

It will be performed in two versions: Basque (15 March) and Spanish (16-18 March).

A new production by the Arriaga Theatre.
