Reclaim the Crone
Gabrielle Leah New and The Space Between Performance Collective
Getting old doesn’t have to mean becoming invisible
Defiantly coming out of the cultural shadow, these dangerous older women Reclaim their Crone superpowers to transform the planet
Join them in a world where age, experience and knowledge are power, beauty and trouble.
Reclaim the Crone is a bold and haunting new performance that uses contemporary Butoh Dance Theatre, Projection, Poetry and Song, to take you on a wild adventure to reclaim the archetype of the Wise Old Woman.
Witness the Crones as they journey and fight for recognition within the Patriarchal domain, invoking the Goddesses of old through song, ritual and powerful dance.
Inspired by the wise words of local Crones, they will mourn the losses of climate devastation and get down to business cleaning up the metaphorical mess as they mend and weave a potential new World where humanity
reconnects with the mysterious old crone-Mother Earth.
“I wanna be a wild old woman. I wanna break the rules, create a new paradigm, find a way to heal the original old crone – Mother Earth.”
