A Journal where Ritual, Sacred and Folk Performance Arts and Scholarship meet.

Like a bright little wildflower, folk, myth, and ritual theatre grows where it can, blooms brightly and seeds itself for future generations. There is an alliterative reference to Kore, the Maiden of the Eleusinian Mysteries in simply saying the name of this wildflower. By doing so, one may evoke the image of the Court of Beautiful Dances, a place where ritual theatre flourished for many thousand years. Like wildflowers, folk theatre flourishes in unexpected places: street corners, alleyways, open fields and along roadsides.

Coreopsis: Journal of Myth & Theatre is published semi-annually by the Society for Ritual Arts.
