Phoenix Auditorium @ The Haven
Its 10th century Sweden.
Ingrid Larsdottir, Shield Maiden, Viking warrior and newly appointed Garrison Commander, kills it on stage at the popular Norse cultural symposium REDTalks.
Think TEDTalks with a Viking twist.
This one woman show shines light on gender bias in history while exploring contemporary feminist issues like the #metoo movement using the unique perspective of a 10th century woman warrior. Shield Maiden addresses the challenges many women continue to face 1,000 years after a Viking warriors time.
After a brief intermission, Melanie will host a discussion with a panel of modern warrior women: Shiela Norgate, Chloe Straw, Iyeshka Farmer, April Warn-Vannini, EJ Hurst and Sheila Malcomson
