The Vic Guild welcomes Jan Andrews and Jennifer Cayley all the way from Ontario. They will be in town with FOUR shows and some workshops to be enjoyed during the Midsumma Festival.
1. The Book of Spells – A Love Story: created and performed by Jan Andrews and Jennifer Cayley for 2 Women Productions (Ontario, Canada). Jan and Jennifer have traveled widely as leading exponents in the art of storytelling, appearing at festivals and concerts throughout the world with The Book of Spells. Together and apart, they have told from epics such as The Iliad and The Odyssey; Jan headlined the 2008 International Storytelling Festival in Hobart.
Both are honoured to be appearing at Midsumma. Jan and Jennifer were born into a time when lesbians lived secret lives and gay men might be imprisoned; when celebrations of Queer Culture were definitely not on the map. They have come a long way but the journey is only just beginning.
