9 Parts of Desire is a portrait of the extraordinary (and ordinary) lives of a whole cross-section of Iraqi women: a painter, a radical Communist, doctors, exiles, wives and lovers. This work delves into the many conflicting aspects of what it means to be a woman in a country overshadowed by war.  9 Edmonton Actors came together to create the many faces that make up our 9 Parts of Desire.
