Murmurations dance will craft, create, cultivate, and remember a mythology; When Women Were Birds. Based on Deleuze and Guattari’s theories about multiplicity and becoming animal, these concepts will be explored through movement, music, poetry, and food.
When Women were Birds, we knew otherwise.
We knew our greatest freedom was in taking flight at night,
when we could steal the heavenly darkness for ourselves,
navigating through the intelligence of stars and the constellations of our own making in the delight and terror of our uncertainty.
The imagery will be abstract and surreal as a way to blur science, felt truth, and personal myth. The story will be created through dance, original music, poetry, and food amidst a vibrant setting in the natural world. Audience members will explore the environment and find themselves part of the piece. Interspersed within Bread and Butter Farms, the natural environment and working farm setting will speak to our connection to place and our relationship with animal and one another.
