From the event website: History and mythology abounds with tales of warriors. Men who acted as servants to powerful ideals, through fierce bravery in battle, either lived to celebrate and fight again, or lost their life in the field and gained special favor for their valor and sacrifice in the after-life. Lesser known are histories and mythologies of powerful female warriors, although women have fought in battles throughout the ages, and do still.
Being a warrior is commonly viewed through the lens of it’s impact on what it means to be male, in so much that to be male inherently comes with an expectation of being warrior-like. While less frequently acknowledged or explored, being a female inherently requires women to also be warrior-like, though on their own terms.
The opening reception will feature performances by Seattle based choreographer, Maya Soto, at 7:30 and 8:30pm.
