Garlic Grrlz, we embody the healing properties of garlic,
a truly magical herb responsible for a variety of real and metaphoric
powers that are needed in our battle to save the earth. Garlic
enhances our immune systems, compromised by the poisons and
cancers of pollution, by the stress of living on this embattled,
overcrowded planet, and by the dis-ease of patriachy. Garlic
fights parasites and germs like those spread by advertising,
sexism, racism, homophobia, greed, and violence. Garlic wards
off evil vampires, like corporate CEO’s, lying politicians,
mad nuclear and genetic scientists, and Christian fundamentalists.
Garlic, like radical feminst activists, is decentralized and
grassroots, and lives independently of social, political, and
economic institutions of the capitalist patriarchy, while seeking
to effect change directly through its own action. And perhaps
most profound, garlic is a perennial that teaches us about nature's
endurance, and the eternal return.
Garlic Grrrlz are perennial beings, returning this spring
to seek their Magic Box. This show takes the epic form of a
sacred quest, as our sheroes encounter more and more bogus magic
in their search for real power, true democracy, and a living
justice for all. In our garlic fantasies, we discovered that
the thing about being perennial is, you get a sense of the spirit
of place, and when disturbing earth changes come, or new genetically
engineered neighbors move in, or the dominant species that sucks
up everything gets more and more unbalanced, you know it. This
knowledge comes from the ground, and feeds your commitment to
stand in your place, dance through your cycles in tune with
the earth, and to tell the truth as you see it.
the grassroots underground movement of the Garlic Grrrlz move
you from the bottom up. Wake up to an earth celebration this
spring with Vox Femina.
