About the Event

The Handless Maiden.....

The Handless Maiden is a tale for these crucible times. A tale of both beauty and violence following the journey of a courageous young woman through desolation to the place where deep healing and regeneration can occur in the belly of Wild Nature herself.

Please join storytellers Jay Leeming, Lara McClure & Tracy Chipman at the edge of the dark forest and together we shall explore this robust, provocative story through performance, community and inquiry. Performances are appropriate for ages 16+.

The Handless Maiden is known to be a German Fairy Tale from the Brother’s Grimm collection 1st published 1812. In the words Laura Simms;

“The story is about a woman's initiation into the underground forest through the rite of endurance. The word endurance sounds as though it means "to continue without cessation," and while this is an occasional part of the tasks underlying the tale, the word endurance also means "to harden, to make robust, to strengthen," and this is the principal thrust of the tale, and the generative feature of a woman's long psychic life. We don't just go on to go on. Endurance means we are making something.”
