SHORT + SWEET DANCE
Show 1 | 10 – 11 September
Who am I? Underneath the clothes, behind the eyes?
A string of breaths, a series of moments, blood slowly running. The ebb and flow.
What came before, that holds me now.
Do I hold it? Does it hold me?
This work explores what we have been gifted, given, entrusted with, thrust into, what has been passed on to us from the women that came before.
a love of tea.
