7 Daughters of Eve launch ceremony Monday, April 6th at CUNY Segal Center

February 19, 2015

Afternoon and evening retrospective and readings of future work to launch Sibyl Kempson's new performance company, 7 Daughters of Eve Thtr. & Perf. Co.

Named for Brian Sykes’ theory of mitochondrial DNA which posits that we are all descended along matrilineal lines from seven original mothers, 7 Daughters of Eve Thtr & Perf. Co. will unearth and contemplate, in contexts of live performance, ritual and installation, places in human history where science, religion and feminism intersect. Its primary guiding principles are to intuitively uncover new narrative structures, to interrogate perceptions of the civilized in relation to ideas and preconceptions of the barbaric, the sacred, the profane, the true, the ordinary, and the in/animate – multiplying the possibilities of meaning, fostering imaginative practice in all participants of the performance, and inviting all to exercise alternate ways of knowing, and locating the signals and patterns of a deeper order.
