Solo Performance for voice and body
A tribute to the female body, to the female power: soft, sweet, enchanting, unpredictable, animalistic. Red liquid rushing in our veins, the warm glow of life pulsating beneath our skin. Body as a territory of desires, projections, explosions and embraces. Body as an individual collage of images and impressions. Body as a mask and a point of entry.

In this trilogy I am approaching themes of being human and the basics of 'living in the body' from an experiential point of view. Through one woman, through my own body in movement on stage and on videos and through my voice, live and pre-recorded, varying from 'singing' to very abstract forms of expression I mirror my dreams and visions of the 'human condition'.
