1503 - Anacaona, Chieftain to the Taino people is hung in the square by Nicolás de Ovando

1570, Grace O’Malley, an Irish Pirate, controls the west seas of Ireland by land and ship

1858, Lakshmibai, Rani of Jhani, leads rebel armies against the English, with her son strapped to her back

2018, three school girls in South London face their final year at school.

Lakshana, Shanay and Jess have been best friends for years, but as their home lives become tense, mental health deteriorates and their future looms, their friendship is tested. The year progresses and tales of women gone before them become relevant, rousing and frightening, warping their present and electrifying their futures.

Using animation to blend past with present Helena Westerman’s second play, Galvanise celebrates female history and unbreakable friendships.

Germinale

March 25, 2018

Germinale is a visual arts piece inspired by The Morning Boat and their Seed Journey initiative. The Morning Boat have been conducting research worldwide into the role of grains within society. With this in mind, Germinale became an exploration of the seasons and their effect on agriculture and in some ways the human condition.

 

Kerry-Jane, visual artist, costume designer and choreographer for the project, became interested in exploring the French Republican Calendar as a source of inspiration for how the seasons impact our lives as humans. My aim as composer was to best portray the motions of the weather and the natural world.
