Title: Blood and Soil: The Art of Survival
“Blood and Soil-The Art of Survival” will focus on 12 repetitive domestic by 12 performers, tasks that women perform daily in an installation and movement based ritual performance. As part of the performance space we will be creating a shrine for the relics of women we cast in blood and soil. In these actions we bring light to gender equality issues and remember those that have been lost due to gendered violence. We perform these tasks as Freedoms. Freedom of choice, freedom of expression, freedom of the social constructs.
