LEGENDS OF THE COVEN
“Marie Laveau, H.P Blavatsky, Biddy Early, Maud Gonne. Just a few of the worlds 'witch women'. These women defied the cultural norms expected of them in their lifetimes in order to delve head-first into Earth's occult mysteries. Often misunderstood, each one gained notoriety and respect in their respective traditions, and forever altered the cultural mind-scape of humanity. Yet, most of these women inhabit a niche, obscure corner of our awareness.”
Legends of the Coven is a spine-tingling show that celebrates these women. Performed by spoken word artist/performer Abby Oliveira with video by Mel Bradley. It will utilise storytelling, spoken-word poetry, music, soundscape and visuals, to present historical accounts of (and fictional tales inspired by) the women of the world's mysteries.
Supported by Derry City and Strabane District Council and Arts Council of Northern Ireland.
