"We are daughters of the Maiden, Mother, and Crone. We believe in the healing power of stories. Using ritual as our guide and theater as our medium, we marry modern perspective and myth. We transcend domesticity and silence to reclaim our roots and tell the tales of forgotten women. Upon our gathering, we will inspire and empower with the stories of old."
Melanie is the Founder and Director of Daughters of Elysium. The company was initially created in 2014. Their inaugural production was The Cave: A Folk Opera at The Hollywood Fringe Festival. As a completely woman-run company, their goal was to produce work inspired by ancient ritualistic theatrical traditions that centered around female-driven stories. The Daughters finished their time in Hollywood with an extended run and received multiple awards and recognition for their production.
The Daughters relocated to NYC to establish a artistic collective. Find out more HERE.
