A contemporary dance trio of witches.
The Triple Goddess - the Maiden, the Mother, and the Crone - is common among many ancient religions. Revel in the mystical power of womanhood as three witches perform a new contemporary dance piece.
This 12-minute piece was created for and presented at the 37th Alberta Dance Festival. Allison is grateful for the support of the Canada Council for the Arts who made it possible to tour this work to Toronto to be presented at the 2019 Your Dance Fest by random acts of dance.
