Proximity and timing can be everything, and luckily for Tennessee Women’s Theater Project, the waters of the Big Flood of 2010 stayed on the east side of Rosa Parks Boulevard. That means that while the nearby Metrocenter area had significant flooding, the Looby Theater was not affected and was ready to roll for last weekend’s opening of the company’s annual celebration of the writings and performance skills of diversely gifted females. TWTP plans on doing some fundraising for flood victims at each performance. Meanwhile, the opening weekend featured clown artistry, plays and Mother’s Day poetry. Next up are “Women Belt It out Night”(May 13), featuring rock 'n' roll songwriters; a dance program with the Nashville Chinese Cultural Club, Labyrinthe Belly Dance Company and Blue Moves Modern Dance Company (May 14); play readings featuring authors Judy Klass, Emily Steele, Valri Bromfield and Robyn Brooks (May 15); and a parade of singer-songwriters (May 16). A third weekend of events will host more of the same in the way of theater and music. Visit www.twtp.org to get the dates and times. On display throughout the fest is artwork by Alicia Booker, Sara Figal, Wendy Kusmaul-Keeling and Beverly Threadgill-Robey.
