A Room of One's Own

“A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write,” Virginia Woolf wrote in her 1929 essay ‘A Room of One’s Own’. Over 90 years later this allegory of financial and spatial independence is more topical than ever. While we are experiencing a feminist backlash during the crisis caused by Coronavirus, women are repeatedly finding that doors are being closed to them and their spaces are becoming smaller or being taken away entirely. In an audio-visual adaptation of the text by Virginia Woolf, Swoosh Lieu ask what the spaces must look like where we can emancipate ourselves and achieve self-realisation. What are the tools we require to tell ourselves about these spaces, to present them to us and to actually bring them into being? The audience moves through the history of spatial settings that women have made their own, shaped and defended to a utopian future of such spaces in which there is room for all and we are not alone.
