Stitch and Witness
Streaming performance on October 17 @ 7:00pm
Tickets available on September 17.
Stitch is told by three women trapped in manufacturing for the oppressive fast-fashion industry. The women take on characteristics of the three Grecian Fates; each voice accompanied by the unique buzz of their sewing machines as they strive for survival in a sweat-shop environment. We present this work through a mix of prerecorded and live media.

*Content Warning: Third Eye strives to produce shows that are culturally relevant and impactful. Please be aware our shows this year do include some explicit language as well as themes of worker abuse, suicide, and emotional distress. Not recommended for children under 17.
The Three Fates pass the shared eye to Alexandra Enyart (also known as Alexis) as she performs her new piece, Witness. An organic exploration of transgender identity for voice and banjo, Alexis grapples with what it means to live ‘unseen’. She eloquently says, “60% of trans people attempt suicide and my goal is to lower that number. This project is about my personal battle to not become part of that 60%. [...] I am taking the imperfect action I can take to tell stories that can be meaningful and relevant to the audiences that see them.”
