La Loba -
Enchanting The Wild
La Loba - Enchanting the Wild is an evocative mix of poetry, chant and music that both explores and invokes the spirit of La Loba.
La Loba is a collector of bones, a being occupying the liminal space between human and animal, who, once she has collected all the pieces of an entire skeleton, can sing flesh back on to bones and call spirit to return to the body. She is no less than a remaker of things lost.
Bone Song are no longer performing this piece. Whilst Jade is busy working on other projects Susan has turned it into a wonderful one woman show with music and silhouette puppetry.
Red Riding Hood has been re-imagined and the wolf recast.
How will the story end?
This story will emerge in many forms...
A book illustrated by Nomi McCleod.
A downloadable audio recording with songs from both Boe Huntress and Carolan Grzensinski and poetry from Susan Taylor.
And finally as a ritualistic performance .
Vasilisa the Brave
I am in the process of learning for performance this wonderful Russian folk tale which includes a doll representing the girls raw intuition.
The tale will be told at night around the fire, and the next morning listeners will take part in a doll making workshop to create their own intuition dolls.
The Story of Skeleton Woman
The Story of Skeleton Woman is a tale that is open, skinless, raw, sensitive, a roller coaster of emotions. A tale of love, death, rebirth and hope. It requires you to bring your fishing rod and seek skeletons at the depths of your soul.
