Spiderwoman Theater: Red Mother

Spiderwoman Theater: Red Mother Julio Pantoja

Red Mother

This is the story of Belle, the Red Mother, who travels across what was once the people’s land with her horse and companion, Blue Fred. Weaving contemporary stories with traditional Kuna demon stories, it explores the many facets of legacy and memory through the eyes of a cunning old Native woman who is living through the wars on Indigenous people.


Spiderwoman Theater is the oldest, continually running, Indigenous women's theater company in the Americas. Their work addresses cultural, social and political issues of concern in the Indigenous and women’s communities. Through the technique of "storyweaving", they create their productions and realize their training and outreach activities.
