Various art forms

She-Wolves is a multi-year project designed to raise awareness of the women who ruled England before Elizabeth I through the performing arts and arts-based education. The book She-Wolves by Helen Castor has been adapted for performance by dancer and actress Laura Careless in collaboration with an international roster of artists in diverse media. It is a highly adaptable and portable show that will tour to rural and urban places, prioritizing locations where local history has been directly affected by the lives of these extraordinary women. Satellite workshops and events in partnership with schools, historical sites and other community hubs will enhance audience enjoyment and understanding, and where appropriate will incorporate local people and arts into performances. The stories of these forgotten icons bring fresh meaning to contemporary gender studies, and the artistic approach makes the accessible to a diverse public while encouraging creative solutions to enduring conflicts. She-Wolves seeks to remind us that historical figures were human, and that we ourselves are in the process of making tomorrow’s history, today.
