Lost Goddess

Saint Louis, Missouri

The Gaslight Theater, 8pm

Tickets: www.brownpapertickets.com


For Lost Goddess trailer, click here.


Lost Goddess follows the mythical descent of Persephone into the mysterious and magical Underworld. Along the way, the audience will encounter some of the formidable creatures that lurk under the surface of our culture: a Diva who asks for too much, a Martyr who loves too much, a Queen who is too ambitious, a Maiden who has drifted too far from home. Through dance, theatre, music, prose, and in homage to the timeless ritual of storytelling, the audience is treated to a multi-sensory experience of a tale that is ancient yet familiar in its themes of personal and seasonal cycles, mother-daughter relationships, and our endless appetite for the unknown. 




PRISM: Facets of the Feminine
Joint Concert with
Troy Ogilvie
Dec. 17th, 8pm - Dec. 18th, 3pm

The Alchemical Theater

New York, New York

Maiden, Mother, Crone. Virgin, Whore, Hag.  Feminine archetypes often fall into exclusionary yet general categories. Through text and dance, these five solos expand our understanding of our modern archetypal options. Like a prism refracting light into color, each work reveals hidden visions of femininity. 


Featuring performers Troy Ogilvie and Laura Careless in works by Itzik Galili, Laura Careless and others.
