Spiderflower: Contemporary Earth Dance / Dance Movement Theatre
Spiderflower is a dynamic yet accessible dance movement theatre practice concerned with bringing the ancient and intelligent relationship between body and earth to life.
“If we want children to flourish, to become truly empowered, then let us allow them to love the earth before we ask them to save it." - David Sobel.
Mother to a beautiful daughter, originator of Spiderflower; the essence of Rowan’s independent work sees the fusion of two disciplines:
With emphasis on the body as an instrument through dance and movement, Rowan has worked in professional theatre as an actor and director since 1989. On a parallel path, the profound life-ways and art forms of the worlds earth-wise peoples inspire her work greatly.
Where the worlds of body and earth meet there breathes an ancient, honeyed language.
For the young.
For the old.
For those in-between.
This dance is made for these times.
