The voice, the vagina, and their innate power as a means of creative expression—the female body, in other words—are at the center of Deborah Jinza Thayer and Movement Architecture’s new work, All Hail the Queen. Could there be a better cultural and political context for this piece? Sadly, no. The guided journey begins in the lobby and hallways before settling onstage. No intimate female anatomy will be on display; rather, movement will stand in for an array of cultural, historical, and embodied experiences. Also, there are puppets! Local phenom movers include Julia Davidson, Non Edwards, Erika Hansen, Christine Maginnis, Sharon Picasso, Eve Schulte, Erin Thompson, and Roxane Wallace.
