What happened to Rhiannon? Once worshipped as a passionate horse Goddess with magical powers, she got snared in Medieval story, tamed and diminished. Rhiannon Unbridled takes the story of Rhiannon out of its well-preserved Welsh Medieval manuscript, and wrestles with it. Jackie Singer calls up Rhiannon as a vital force that’s needed in the world now. But you don’t invoke a Goddess as a literary exercise. This is personal. Through myth and personal story, song and imagination, this one-woman show enacts the journey from compliant silence to an awakened female power.
