Into the Circle Theatre's
Sacred Intention

Into the Circle Theatre is passionately rooted in reverently honouring the tradition of the seanchaí in a modern context.  Through the weaving  of Irish culture, history, folkore, and mythology, we share hallowed tales of women re-membering and re-claiming their embodied wisdom and sovereign power. 

Inspired by the sacredness and healing power of sharing stories,  

Into the Circle Theatre facilitates theatrical gatherings with the hopes of nourishing the soul, opening the heart, inspiring the mind, and alighting the spirit.

Stars, Stones, and Shadows
A Heroine's Tale

Mysticism. Magic. And lore. Traverse into the shadows of our heroine's journey, into the Otherworld, sacredly held by some of Ireland's most ancient and prolific goddesses.  

 

With the sturdy guidance and powerful presence of Queen Macha, the Morrigan, and Brigid, our heroine goes within, as she remembers:

 

Her feelings are nothing to fear.

 

Her magic is her gift to the world.

 

Her voice is her power.

 

And her healing is hers to weave - if she is open to listening to the wisdom of her body and spirit.
