Confessions of the Other Woman by Valerie Sing Turner
What would you do if you met your soul mate - and he was married? Confessions of the Other Woman is the moving portrayal of a modern woman driven by passion, racked by questions of integrity and bound by a legacy of honour.
A meditation of love - between lovers, between spouses, with our ancestors and within our selves - Confessions integrates dance, poetry, contemporary movement and humour to explore the dynamics, absurdities and emotional fall-out of love, and what it means for a woman to embrace personal integrity in the 21st century.
