The Perpich Center is thrilled to present a Lecture/Demonstration by the groundbreaking Spiderwoman Theater – the longest-running Native American theater company in the country – on Tuesday, March 5th from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Please join us to learn about Spiderwoman’s unique methodology of theater-making. “Storyweaving” describes the layering of stories, images, sound, movement, and music, creating a three dimensional tapestry which is embodied in space and becomes the theater production.

For more information about the company, visit their website at:

Presenters: Founding Member and Artistic Director Muriel Miguel (Kuna/Rappahannock) and other members of Spiderwoman Theater, as well as cast/creative team members from their touring production of Misdemeanor Dream.

Participants: This lecture/demonstration is geared for both students and educators, specifically K-12/College/University Theater and Arts Students, Educators, and Directors. (Space limit is 160 people. Priority will be given to theater and arts students, educators, and directors, but all are welcome!)

Learn firsthand from the country’s longest-running Native American, multiracial, feminist theater companies about their unique methodology of theater-making called Storyweaving. Deepen and diversify your ability to RESPOND and CONNECT to the arts, especially your skills for analyzing and interpreting artistic forms. Develop an understanding of how Spiderwoman Theater artists “integrate knowledge and personal experiences while responding to, creating, and presenting artistic work,” and the ways in which “artistic works influence and are influenced by personal, societal, cultural, and historical contexts.” Come to listen, be with, and witness these legendary women in person!!!
