'Le Donne are two ardent females of uncertain age and time, with no fixed
language or style and an unpredictable mission. Neo Post-Goth, Post-Hip and
Post-Hippy, neo Absurd (but posted) empassioned early on by Theatre of the
Absurd, Artaud and Dada, they are formlessly unencumbered by their posts,
alchemising their backgrounds in acting, music, poetry, art: live and
installation to the strings of the mandolin. Inscrutable, wise and never
cosy, they leave a little tremble in their wake... '

Proceeds 50% to be shared between the artists and 50% to Women Against Rape and Black Women's Rape Action Project.
Both organisations are based on self-help and provide support, legal
information and advocacy. We campaign for justice and protection for all
women and girls, including asylum seekers, who have suffered sexual,
domestic and/or racist violence.
WAR was founded in 1976. It has won changes in the law, such as making rape
in marriage a crime, set legal precedents and achieved compensation for many
women. BWRAP was founded in 1991. It focuses on getting justice for women of
colour, bringing out the particular discrimination they face. It has
prevented the deportation of many rape survivors. Both organisations are
multiracial. Volunteers welcome.
