Indian Summer 2006: Spiderwoman Theater

As a part of Indian Summer 2006 in The Circle, Spiderwoman performs one-woman works by Gloria Miguel, Lisa Mayo, and Muriel Miguel (respectively), as well as storyweaving material developed as an ensemble. This was one of the last performances to be held at the renowned AICH venue at 404 Lafayette, and therefore an emotional piece and an homage to the long and fruitful relationship between Spiderwoman Theater and the American Indian Community House.

Spiderwoman Theater is the longest continuous running Native female performance group in North America. Comprised of three Kuna/Rappahannock sisters from Brooklyn, NY (Lisa Mayo, Gloria Miguel and Muriel Miguel), the group has traveled all over the world sharing performances, lectures, and workshops. Named after the Hopi goddess Spiderwoman, who taught the people to weave, the sisters write and perform stories through what they call "storyweaving," their technique of creating storytelling theatrical pieces through text, movement, music, visual images, and song.
