Description

Alien Creature: a visitation from Gwendolyn MacEwen is inspired by MacEwen's life and work, yet is an entirely new creation. MacEwen, as evoked by Linda Griffiths, returns to a modern world one night, bringing images and a prophetic warning. There has been a death of poetry, of imagination. The city will pay. The world will pay. Then she laughs, opens her hands, pulling brilliant scarves from the air. On this night, MacEwen is torn apart by her magic, made invincible by her magic. Revealed as drunk, lover, poet, and magician, Gwendolyn MacEwen rises to inspire and incite us.
