Using gesture and sound to access the deep body. To invoke Venus, goddess of beauty, birthed from the sea, star of the sky. To explore / convey the mass of pregnancy. To express waiting and preparation for birthing of the new being.
The performer marks a sacred space with fruit, figs, plums, etc. / with objects and materials from the sea. The shape is of an infinity symbol. The performer walks describing these figures of infinity. With her body and voice she calls up and directs energy, weaving together stories from the deep body mythology, whilst raising a space for transformation. She holds her pregnant egg-womb, she holds with reverence this state of new life growing. She acknowledges also the weight of bearing, and moving with this new being.
