Event description

Description

Hildegard Herself
Friday, November 22 & Saturday, November 23 @ 7pm
St John's Episcopal Cathedral
514 West Adams Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90007

Hildegard von Bingen, a woman ahead of her time, was a German Benedictine abbess, writer, composer, philosopher, Christian mystic, visionary, polymath and is considered to be the founder of scientific natural history. Her work spanned the theological, artistic, and scientific fields in a time when women rarely had the opportunity to speak up.

Following The Hour of Hildegard, Duckler’s first installment which explored Hildegard’s book on health and healing, Hildegard Herself will focus on the many elements that made this Saint a radical innovator. The performance will take place in St. John’s historic Parish Hall, courtyard garden, and central Cathedral, where guests are invited to experience Hildegard’s feminist spirit and legacy. The work will explore the multiple dimensions of her innovations in the realms of healing, music, language, and justice.

Choreographed & Directed by Heidi Duckler, the Hildegard Herself features HDD company dancers Tess Hewlett, Haylee Nichele, Rafael Quintas, Himerria Wortham, Dominique McDougal and William Jay Ylvisaker. Collaborator, Dr. Christopher Gravis, Canon for Music Ministry and Cathedral Arts at St. John's, will direct live singers from the Ensemble Vocatrix in Hildegard's original work, and Sarah Belle Reid will play prepared trumpet with a Minimally Invasive Gesture Sensing Interface (MIGSI) device.
