Dark Goddess '04
Conceived and Directed by Bonnie Cullum; Musical Composition by Content Love Knowles
Presented by The VORTEX Repertory Company
In this all-new theatre ritual, Dark Goddess '04, VORTEX Producing Artistic Director, Bonnie Cullum, teams up with 11 dynamic priestesses and goddesses to create theatre ritual. The stunning gathering of goddesses in Dark Goddess '04 includes a global array of the Divine Feminine.
Original music, dance, and text blend to bring forth the essence of each goddess. In a magical ritual setting, these dark Goddesses remember promises, create challenges, confront fear, explore mysteries, offer healing, celebrate sex, and embrace death. This theatre ritual seeks to create more balance in the world by re-membering these goddesses, telling their stories, and seeking their wisdom.
Dark Goddess '04 features:
Maori Star Girl
