I Am You

Performative Ritual-Street-Theatre piece / 2023

Synopsis

Tired of being ignored, silenced, usurped, devoured and raped daily, Mother Nature materializes herself in the bodies and voices of “plant-animal” women and claim back her space. A ritual, a witchcraft, an ancestral return to the beginning, or a declaration of love to the one who offers us so much and receives so little in return. A pause, a sacrifice to the busy time that urges for money, greed and destruction. How many times have you sacrificed your time just to be grateful to nature?

 

“I Am You” is a movement offering piece, made to enchant the urban center and proposes to the public of the big cities a pause, an opening of their eyes and ears, their senses, to allow themselves to be bewitched.
