HEAR WORD! Naija Woman Talk True, the critically acclaimed Nigerian production making its U.S. premiere in Cambridge, is a powerful piece of performance art that combines artistry, social commentary, and true-life stories of inequality and transformation, delivered by a cast of ten women from Nigeria including Nollywood's own Joke Silva, Taiwo Ajai-Lycett and Bimbo Akintola. The stories are based on real issues affecting the lives of women across Nigeria and examine what factors limit their potential for independence, leadership, and meaningful contribution. HEAR WORD! bravely examines the cultural and societal norms that oppress and limit African women and empowers women to break the culture of silence, unite, challenge the status quo, move beyond barriers and create solutions.

The production is presented by the Harvard Center for African Studies in association with American Repertory Theater; Harvard University Committee on the Arts; the Division of Social Sciences, Faculty of Arts and Sciences; Harvard Dance Center; Hutchins Center for African & African American Research; Harvard Law School; Mahindra Humanities Center; Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study; and the Theater, Dance & Media Concentration at Harvard University.
