Introducing HELDIN: A female's journey
It's time to get real about the role of feminism in the 21st Century.
We find ourselves at a critical moment in history. The world of Trump, traditional white male oligarchs and Harvey Weinstein is beginning to crumble. Power structures are starting to crack, and the wave is coming. Hard.
Therefore, I think it's high time we redefine what it means to be female in this age; to reclaim the narrative of our experience, our inner world, and explore what it truly means to make space for the essence of femininity as a force in the world.
To this end, I am proud to introduce my latest project :
HELDIN is a multi part, hybrid classical music concept, weaving classical art song, chamber music, dance, and narration to tell the stories of female experience. The first installment, Heldin I, is based on the music of Richard Strauss and loosely inspired by Schumann's great song cycle Frauenliebe und Leben, tracing the arc of inner female experience from youth through old age. Heldin I explores the themes of ageism, beauty, youth and love from an intimate and uniquely female point of view.
Stay tuned for more updates, including our Crowdfunding campaign to bring Heldin to life !
