This project will explore the shared stories that, as womxn, we carry between us.
Designed for an intimate performance setting, the project will draw together practices from dance, immersive theatre and the visual arts to create a performed journey that elevates womxn’s narratives within a shared, empowering experience.
Gathering womxn’s stories through research and interviews, Rachel Elderkin is interested in creating a space that celebrates the multifaceted nature of womxn and the different expressions and experiences of identifying as female. Rachel is intrigued as to how certain narratives, repeated across history, hold repercussions through time. These repeated stories fuel a need to unite and to find empowerment together.
Rachel would like to bring together the struggles, strength and wisdom of womxn into a performed journey that, through a shared experience, offers hope, healing and empowerment for today.
As part of Rachel’s residency, she held a virtual coffee morning for womxn to join and share their stories on Tuesday 20 Oct, 10.30am-12pm.
