Goddess, Witch, Daughter, Mother, Whore, Crone – Reconnecting and remembering what has been erased from our Matriarchal lineage and herstory – magic, life, sex, the body, spirituality and creation. Re-defining all that is relegated to the gendered body of woman. Specifically this performance and installation navigates the fat, older female body as a site of resistance in contemporary culture: connecting woman to her body, her herstory and her current collective of crones and dames. It celebrates the magic and the multitude of differences women bring to culture, spirituality, healing, politics, love, science and the environment (nature). By positioning the body as central in this piece as sexy, fat and ageing, we dissent in the face of our dominant cultures prescription of the “perfect” body, the perfect “woman” and the invisibility/invalidation of the Crone.
