hildegard's resonant apothecary


Mystic, medic, musician, Hildegard von Bingen (1098-1179) gained renown far beyond her Rhineland convent as the embodiment of the female wisdom and potency that were also crucial to her own understanding of the cosmos. Co-director Shira Kammen will join Alkemie to invoke Hildegard’s voice, presenting Hildegard’s unique vision of the greening of the soul through songs and instrumental dances interwoven with quotes from Hildegard’s Physica and Causae et curae. Alkemie will also be joined by singer Fiona Gillespie and percussionist Dylan Greene for this very special project.

More information about tickets for this event in NYC and MA will be forthcoming.
