Jane Curry is an author, storyteller, performer, and recovering academic with a knack for provoking both thought and laughter with her one-woman shows. Since 1983, she has traveled with her various personae to forty-eight states, Israel and Japan and is available for single-show events, multiple-show tours, and residencies.
Written and performed with a sense of history and humor, the five shows described below address themes of women's history and gender equity. They have been featured for a variety of audiences and venues: performing arts stages, conferences, banquets, fundraisers, teacher in-service workshops, Artists/Lecture/Lyceum/Convocation Series, student assemblies, government agencies, corporations, college and university programming, community groups, festivals, and celebrations.
These performances are also especially appropriate for special events: Women's Equality Day (August), National Girls and Women in Sports Day (February), Women's History Month (March), Math, Science, & Technology Month (April), National Chemistry Week (October), Federal Women's Day, Introduce a Girl to Engineering Day (February), and National Business Women's Week (October).
In 2012 we will be marking the 40th anniversary of Title IX, which has had a profound effect on women in educational programs and activities, particularly in sport. Celebrate this milestone with a performance of "Nice Girls Don't Sweat."
