Documentary-opera meets quirky gardening show, bingenTV immerses audiences in the world of the Hildegard von Bingen Society for Gardening Companions, a queer-feminist collective originally founded by the German mediaeval mystic and musician Hildegard von Bingen and only recently uncovered by scholars. Through music, film, text, and a healthy dose of gossip, the show traces the history of the society and its revivals. With Sophie Seita as bingenTV’s charismatic host, you’ll not only be treated to a whirlwind jaunt through space and time, but also to some of history’s most insightful minds on interspecies and environmental care, plants, and healing. In the process, the performance offers a poignant meditation on hidden & forgotten voices in gardening history and beyond.

 

Guests at the interactive broadcast will have the opportunity to meet current members of the society & ask for gardening advice!

 

Age range: All ages, but mostly adults

 

In a festival of new work, please note that shows can often overrun.
