Horae – Fragments of a sacred history of prostitution
A 40 minute Theatre experience, written and performed by Susie Lamb
February 20- 26, 7 pm (Extra shows 4pm, Saturday 25 and Sunday 26)
Horae is an evocative tapestry of storytelling, song and movement which explores the ancient mysteries of sacred prostitution. What was the true nature of the role of priestess? What did a sacred sexuality look like? How did the ‘holy whore’ fall so out of power to become a maligned ‘streetwalker’?
Horae unearths a fragmented history that sheds fascinating light on modern sexual politics. Delivered in an intimate style, Susie draws on her experience as both actress and dancer to create a unique fusion of story, song and movement that tells the story of one young initiate into an all-priestess temple somewhere in the Mediterranean circa 6000 years ago. This story is inspired by research Lamb undertook in Sicily and Malta (Lamb also holds a Degree in Archaeology).
Informative, moving, mysterious: this one-woman performance weaves a radical story around one woman’s body, and is at the same time a powerful enactment of the rebuilding of a sacred space – whether body or temple – that is under the exclusive control of women. Horae is a must see for anyone concerned with the topic of female power, gender politics and hidden histories.
Written and performed by Susie Lamb, Horae was shortlisted for the Women Playwrights International Conference in South Africa in 2014. With Dramaturgy by Jeffrey Gormly (Abbey Theatre, Daghdha Dance Co, nervousystem Theatre Lab) , Lighting design by award-winning Adrian Mullan and presented in The Complex, Inner City Dublin’s new live arts centre, Horae is set to be an unusual and moving theatre experience….
