Sandbox Theatre’s “Bone Mother”
September 19 to 27, 7:30 p.m.
The Museum of Russian Art
5500 Stevens Ave. Mpls. 55419
Sandbox Theatre, in partnership with The Museum of Russian Art, will perform their all-new production, “Bone Mother,” on September 19-27 at The Museum of Russian Art.
A world premiere show in a one-of-a-kind venue, “Bone Mother” is folklore come to life in the air above you. A new play created from scratch by Sandbox’s aerial wing, The Swingset, “Bone Mother” is an examination of femininity’s untamable perseverance, its kinship with nature, and its expression through a spectrum of gender—all in the face of society’s history to deny, ignore, repress and vilify its progress.
In the depths of a dark Russian forest, in a house perched atop chicken legs and surrounded by a fence of flaming skulls, lives a hideous old crone named Baba Yaga. Do you dare enter? In the forest there are wild things—ostracized, forgotten, shadow things. And you. Who will you be in the moonlight?
In mythology, as in our society, women who don’t fit in have long been dismissed as witches and reviled as evil. But can naming it “evil” really be fear of its power? Its influence? Its wisdom? Why must women cultivate fear to be seen and heard?
