Investigate the unique process that the women of Spiderwoman Theater use to create their plays. “Storyweaving” describes the layering of stories, images, sound, movement and music, creating a three dimensional tapestry which is embodied in space and becomes the theatre production. Incorporating the exercises that have been learned in the workshop, the participants will collectively build a performance of the stories which they will then present.
