‘Marvelously dramatic dancer’ (New York Times) Brighton-based Laura Careless tells stories of forgotten female rulers of England before Elizabeth I. Based on Helen Castor’s book and the accompanying BBC series, this is history with contemporary bite told through performance. In the medieval world, power was inescapably male. Yet despite all the obstacles that stood in their way, a handful of extraordinary women did attempt to rule. When they pursued their power like kings, they were vilified as she-wolves. Tickets for Friday, January 13th’s performance can be found here.
Each performance is preceded by a reception for the accompanying exhibition at 6:30pm, and followed by a live panel discussion with Laura Careless, artists from the exhibition, a national female business leader based in Maine, and a leading female lawmaker from Maine. Moderated by Hogfish’s co-founder, Edwin Cahill and SPACE’s Executive Director, Kelsey Halliday Johnson.
