Sacred Cow

Sacred Cow

After graduating in Fine Art at Bretton Hall College Eelyn Lee co-founded Sacred Cow, a performance group making devised, site-specific theatre in old mills and warehouses in Bradford.

Following a funded research trip to study visual theatre in Poland, Sacred Cow were supported by Yorkshire Arts to make Fool's Gold, a piece of work exploring the falling icons of the cold war.

Their second piece, Dashing Away with a Carving Knife, also supported by Yorkshire Arts explored the medical model of the female body.

In 1992 Sacred Cow received funding to study the performing arts of South India in Kerala.
