SACRED AWAKENING is a multifaceted project which researches the physical and energetic states of the female body. This Is Not My Skin is the third installment, and first live performance piece of this larger project. Through movement and song, This Is Not My Skin allows the audience to witness a journey of two female-inhabiting people become aware of and release their patriarchal conditioning, or ‘skins’ that aren’t theirs. This piece is inspired by the notion that the most radical way to heal is by returning to the body: returning to feeling. It speaks to systematic expectations of female sexuality, inter-relational rape and unspoken sexual abuse.
Content Warning: Sensitive content around the topic of rape is discussed in this performance, and there are sexual references made through movement and costuming.
