The Mountain and Other Tales of She Transformed is a solo. It is a woman performing. It is a meditation on ‘feminism as the female command of space’ - the many things this could mean and the many ways it could manifest.
Inspired by mountains, fairytales and a 1970s body work book for women thoughts and feelings around the ‘female command of space’ are transfigured into movement, sound and imagery. The set will feature an installation by multi disciplinary artist Nicola Singh.
Each performance of The Mountain and Other Tales of She Transformed will include a series of workshops aimed at women and female identifying people. The workshops will be curated around the themes of the performance and will include physical, practical and artistic sessions. The workshops will be spaces of reflection, restoration and empowerment.
The Mountain and Other Tales of She Transformed is currently in development. Please check back for updates.
(The phrase ‘female command of space’ was coined by artist Jessy Tuddenham in response to research as part of Hannah’s previous work S/HE).
