Visual artist Kathryn Oliver and performing artist Kristi Williamson discovered a shared passion for myth, dance and poetry. They embarked upon their first theater collaboration in 2009 with an emphasis on archetypal storytelling. Since then they have continued to enrich Midcoast Maine with this unique theater model to great acclaim. From 2009 - 2012 they created Earth Maiden, featuring mythical stories and large puppetry: TerraDidddleCollective. Beginning in 2013, they followed up with LEAP, a ritual performance inspired by the poetry of Rumi.
Continuing their creative journey in myth and the imagination for 2017, their new production "Wax Wings" is an artistic exploration of how symbol and metaphor empower us through the imaginary.
Constraints and possibility - two sides to a whole.
With timeless poetry and stories in Kathryn's short films, photographs and paintings and Kristi's choreography and original melodies, "Wax Wings" highlights the profundity of the imagination and explores the complex shadow archetype through visual and dramatic storytelling.
