“The Woman Who Spat an Apple” is the third edition of Rosa Antuña’s Feminist Trilogy.  The trilogy incorporates her premiere solo "Wild Woman," which debuted in 2010, and her second solo entitled "The Dress" which debuted in 2014.

The novel, "The Bed on the Balcony" by Brazilian author Regina Navarro Lins, was one of the inspirations in creating this work. To elaborate on her project, Rosa Antuña took up an Artist Residency at the Odin Theater in Holstebro, Denmark, where she was directed by the renowned actress Roberta Carreri in December of 2014.

The work covers many issues surrounding women's gender roles throughout history and in our current society.  This work evokes questions about the expectations we place on women in their personal and professional lives including romantic relationships, the frustrations of life, disappointments, and the unattainable standards of the female condition.
