Empowered Women Trilogy: Talk by Dr Mark Philpott about Bearded Women Saints

  • Dr Mark Philpott Speaker
1:30pm, SJE Arts

Blurring the boundaries of what a concert is, The Telling bring you three intimate “concert-theatre” pieces to mark International Women’s Day 2019, transporting you back in time through plaintive ballads, lively dance music and dramatic narrative. The Empowered Women Trilogy celebrates the lives of three extraordinary women who defy the strictures of their time and whose stories are both of their time but also startlingly contemporary.

Superstition, medieval credulity, iconographical mistake or photo-feminist heroic? Dr Mark Philpott explains a once-popular cult.

End time c. 2:30pm
