Maureen Fleming, Artistic Director
'Wildflowers Encounter' is a sensuous celebration of the feminine archetype, inspired by the lush symbolism of Irish poet William Butler Yeats. Reclaiming the mystical feminine occluded by colonization and misogynist distortions of religious belief, 'Wildflowers Encounter' coalesces Maureen Fleming's unique choreographed form of interdisciplinary visual theater in a series of vision poems featuring live music by Irish composer/violinist Colm Mac Con Iomaire and Uillean piper James Mahon with pianist Bruce Brubaker performing the music of Philip Glass.
