About

Spit and Ashes is a reimagining of the historical violence waged against women
by patriarchal forces in the name of religion, medicine and family. The High
Priestess embodies the wild, sexual and grotesque – the un-tamable hunger of
female desire and the ultimate threat to male power. The Midwife is the spirit of
all women who sought knowledge and agency over their own bodies and paid for their agency with their lives. Through a series of erotic and brutal rituals these women come together to reclaim their bodies and prepare for the fight ahead.

Lust..rust...and all things painfully delicious.. dividing with knives, these thighs
tremble. this breath quickens. this skin rises & writhes exquisitely at the hands of the feminine divine…

The witches man failed to burn.. the mothers who's scars glow with an untamed
raging fury. the daughters the church tried to bury, the fierce lovers who will keep on fighting..

...into the fire they will go, because we know no other way than to keep on
burning.
