Queens of the Underworld
House of Persephone
A research and performance project undertaken by Oberon White & Laura Gwen Miles.
The project explored various performance based responses to the myths and cultural practices connected to the Eleusinian Mysteries and the figures of Persephone/Kore, Demeter and Hades.
Exploring the themes of mortality, trauma, patriarchy/matriachy and ancestry from a queer, feminist perspective, the work combined elements of original text, music, film, ritual action and autobiographical material gathered through interviews with family members.
