About this show

Angel Reapers is a multidisciplinary work suggested by the life of Ann Lee (1736-1784), founder of the Shaker movement. Mother Ann, as she became known, was a visionary, mystic and powerful spiritual leader. Preaching celibacy, she demonstrated that through shaking and trembling movements, sin could be purged from the body. The plot of Angel Reapers is woven throughout with movement, song and dance to bring to life this extraordinary 18th century woman and the singular world she created.
