About this Event

FOX WOMAN

When a mysterious and powerful fox woman appears in his hut, a lonely hunter is forced to choose between the wild and the tamed. How to accommodate one another? What do we risk when we accommodate too much? And when violence emerges, do we recognize it? Do we leave? Before our war on the wild, before today's ecological crisis, there was a love affair.

Flamenco dancer and storyteller Denise Yeo retells an ancient Siberian myth. Flamenco guitarist Gareth Owen accompanies her. With evocative, traditional flamenco dances, Yeo embodies Fox Woman and the Hunter. Hypnotic and improvised movement and rhythm... drenched with the darkest impulses.

Strength. Resiliency. Playfulness. Mockery. Empowerment. Pride.

Fox Woman tells a story about our relationship with the wild — in ourselves and others — and our emerging ecological crisis. It's also a story that empowers us, in our human relationships, to leave situations that are not safe.

Palabra Flamenco toured Fox Woman in the Toronto and Winnipeg Fringe Festivals. For this special Victoria performance, they will also tell a second story... of Fox Woman's origins.

Tickets are available online via Eventbrite or at the door (cash only).
