‘Song and Silence’ is a women’s production of music and movement. The second half is music a portrayal of three spiritual personalities-Bridget of Celtic origin, Machig Lapdron, a Tibetan Buddhist and Parvati, a Tantric Yoginii. The performance is and impression of the essence of these little known women mystics, and an acknowledge-ment of the contribution these women have made, and their relevance today as spiritual examples for women and men.
