Creatrix is a group devised piece of theatre, synthesising movement and language. The movement is sometimes in conjunction with the language and at other times it is separate but its purpose remains the same, to heighten understanding and to forge another dimension of meaning
A great deal of time was spent researching for material that would illuminate the concept of the production. The sources are wide and varied, incorporating poetry, prose and dramatic monologue. These pieces tell the story of our inherent creativity and drive for life that is present at birth but which can be stifled by the social forces around us. It can however be rediscovered and enjoyed.
A positive conclusion was fundamental to the concept. It was founded in the idea that all things are interconnected and that out of darkness is born light, that out of negative can arise the positive and out of death, the renewal of life. The production is divided into five stages, these being: Birth, Initiation, Discovery, Creativity and Wisdom, concluding with the renewal of that cycle.
