Funny. Sexy. Fierce. Unapologetic!
Imagine a 10th century Viking TED Talk on what it means to be a Viking warrier woman. As Garrison Commander Ingrid Larsdottir comedically endeavours to engage new recruits, she inadvertently reveals her own trafgic and violent personal history. Watching her struggle with her trauma is unsettling. Witnessing her tap into her inner strength is inspiring. Ingrid's clarion call for equality and new recruits prevails! She enpowers women to reclaim the warrior archetype in our modern world.
This modern feminist story uses a character from the past to expose the reality that not enough has changed in the treatment of women since the time of Vikings...one thousand years ago. The show challenges untruths about women and gendered expectations and is based on an historical character who history gaslit the hell out of.
Please note that this performance of Sheild Maiden will no longer be performed alongside an ASL (American sign language) interpreter.
Run time is 60 minutes plus post show discussion with local female women warriers
