An extended weekend of workshops and panels tailored to empower and enhance the careers of solo performers in particular. This event has information that can benefit all performers.


Prior to 2020, The Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival’s (LAWTF) Annual Empowerment Event had been a one-day program. Since that time, our virtual format has come to lend itself to a full weekend of programming.


This weekend event includes career training from industry professionals that is designed to give a boost to solo performers. Workshops and panels will cover areas especially tailored to solo artists such as creating a solo show, marketing, team work, touring, and career development. Attendees will be able to attend 11 offerings including an interview with LAWTFs Co-Founder, workshops and panels.


Tuition for the weekend is $30 Early Bird (ending August 7th), $40 General Admission. A Zoom link will be sent to those who have completed registration.


Founded in 1993 by Adilah Barnes and Miriam Reed, the Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival holds the distinction of being the oldest Annual Solo Festival in Los Angeles celebrating powerful women performers. A critically-acclaimed international festival, LAWTF has produced well over 600 extraordinary solo artists from around the globe. These multicultural and multi-disciplined performers represent diverse disciplines as theatre, dance, storytelling, performance art, performance poetry, spoken word, mime, music and song.

All in all, this is the most information you will find about the production of solo performance at one time in one place. Come out, support and enjoy!
