We have been busy bees over the past few weeks. It's getting closer and closer to the performance deadline so we've been racking our brains to come up with new ideas.
We refuse to be silenced
The theme underlying our performance is caring for one another. Giving love and forgetting hatred, dishonesty and ego. We like the idea of a motherly figure within the piece, giving homage to mother nature and goddesses. In a world full of war, anger and sadness, we wanted to show that there is love, and care between people; there is hope.

We want to create an intimacy within our performance; between each other but also between actor and audience. Marina Abramovic is one of our biggest inspirations who created a performance called 'House with Ocean View' where she locked eyes with the audience for prolonged periods of time. Creating a connection with our audience is very important as our message needs to be heard. We want to give ourselves to our audience, for them to walk away knowing something about us, and the challenges we face being women. We want to create a space where the audience feel loved and cared for so that they reflect it back on us full force. The world would be a better place if we loved and cared freely, right?
