Reclaim the Crone
by Gabrielle Leah New

If older women were recognised for their strength beauty and power could humanity move in a more positive direction?

At a time when older women are forced into the shadows the Crones have appeared to crush convention and herald in a new age. Returning after their celebrated premiere season at the 2023 Mornington Peninsula Drift Festival The Space Between Performance Collective now brings this electric and dynamic show to the Theatre Works Explosives Factory in St Kilda.

A bold and haunting performance that uses contemporary Butoh dance theatre projection poetry and song Reclaim the Crone celebrates the archetype of the Wise Old Woman while taking audiences on a fantastical adventure. They fight for recognition invoke the Goddesses mourn loss and get dirty as they clean house and weave a new world where humanity reconnects with the ultimate crone - Mother Earth.

A multi-layered journey of defiance growth and transformation Reclaim the Crone is a provocative treat asking audiences to imagine a world where age experience and knowledge equate to power beauty.. and trouble.

With an exciting original sound score by world-renowned composer Norm Skipp choreography by Gabrielle Leah New and a remarkable ensemble on board - this unconventional Melbourne premiere season plays for nine shows only and is not to be missed.

Founded in 2009 by Gabrielle Leah New The Space Between Performance Collective invites collaborators to develop new multi-dimensional performance works primarily aimed at pushing the boundaries of the live performance experience. Past works include Creature (2009-2011) Ten Worlds (2013) and Thing with Feathers (2013). After taking a hiatus The Collective now returns with Reclaim the Crone.

This season is proudly supported by The Mornington Peninsula Performing Arts Fund CLIMARTE Auspicious Arts Projects Theatre Works and ACF Supporters
