To mark International Women’s Day this year, Edinburgh-based Strange Theatre have devised an intriguing-sounding new play and an accompanying series of arts events at the Scottish Storytelling Centre from 2-28 March.
At the heart of the festival is Goddess, a new devised production directed by Caitlin Skinner. Taking the ancient Celtic archetypes of maiden, mother and crone and juxtaposing them with modern-day equivalents, it promises to be an interesting and topical piece examining what it means to be a woman in today’s Scotland. The play runs from 8-10 March at 7pm.
As well as the play, a series of events are being held at the Scottish Storytelling Centre as part of the Goddess Festival, including the I Am Woman art exhibition, on show from 2-28 March; a Gifts of the Goddess arts & crafts market on the 8th and 9th; and an evening of performance poetry with Strange Theatre’s Rachel Amy on the 7th.
A great opportunity to see some new theatre and mark International Women’s Day, you can feel the power of the Goddess on the production’s blog; and see the full range of events on the Scottish Storytelling Centre’s website.
