A Workshop Sharing in support of WIN House
From the sparkling bay of Themyscira, to the jagged teeth of the Caucasus mountains, these lands are home to the Amazons; a society of fierce-hearted warrior women who live freely beyond the grip of the patriarchal Greek world- that is, until now. As the dust settles and the sun sets over the battlefield, the Amazons must regroup if they're to rescue their beloved sister Antiope from her Athenian captors.
The Amazonomachy is a brand-new classical play that explores a vibrant matriarchal society inspired by both ancient myth and real-life warrior women. Written and directed by settler/Métis artist Danielle LaRose, this piece reclaims and reinvents "the classics" to be more accessible, empowering, and inclusive.
After a sold-out reading this summer at pêhonân (Edmonton Fringe Festival's first all-Indigenous venue), The Tiger's Hearts Collective were able to hold a five-day in-person workshop to explore the physical world of these passionate and powerful women. Now, we are thrilled to be able to share that continuing work with all of you here on FringeTV! Join us in the rehearsal room as we workshop the first half of The Amazonomachy. Together, we'll immerse ourselves in this epic story complete with heart-pumping fight sequences and beautiful poetic language- we'll even play with some costume and set pieces!
Tickets are Pay-What-You-Can and all box office proceeds will be donated to our friends at WIN House.
