Review: Unexploded Ordnances, a salute to history


The prologue to the performance of Unexploded Ordnances is a ‘salute to history’ from Lois Weaver. It replaces the acknowledgement to indigenous peoples typically used in America and Canada – in Europe, they take a moment to acknowledge the history of the venue they are in. It is fitting also then to acknowledge the history, and resonance across the performance, of Split Britches themselves – formed in 1980 in New York City and working on feminist, lesbian identities.
