‘From Visions’

Welcome to the temple of the Goddess and the Whore.

Join the congregation. There will be rites of passage, meetings with the Goddess in an exchange of the ultimate height of love. As either participant or onlooker we welcome you.

The Whore dances the motions of life, lost in repetition. The Goddess on a higher mantel looks over to her muse and consort, as the time of the Whore is only how the Goddess achieves all her lessons, learns of life and woes.

This is a ritualistic performance by Priya Saujani and Kate Spence, distant Sisters who work collaboratively from intuition based on visions.

On 31st October 2014 Priya and I performed ‘From Visions’ at SPILL Festival of Performance, 2014. SPILL is a fantastic festival and it was incredible to be included in its program this year. We not only had the opportunity to present this work but also to see many performance pieces that challenged, delighted and left us exhausted but enthused.

We feel this work is very important in the feminist dialogue and Spill gave us this opportunity to speak.

We are continuing to evolve our work together and hope to bring you more in 2015!
