Ticket - Performance - Through Shelters - Sunayana Shetty - April 22 - 7 PM
About the Event
“Through Shelters” is a work where we call out to our maternal bodies. The work examines different practices that invite the body to feel beyond the possessive skin bound body and open to be in a relational kin-bound body. While building an intuitive relation with what the body carries, we work with
tracing our memories and finding our deep songs. One after the other following through the many waves, we are mothering and raising our inner processes.
This work first premiered as a duo with Katerina Delakoura at Ada Studios (under the title of 'Mother Tongue') in Berlin (February 2022) and later as a solo work at the Fertile Ground Showing in New York (April 2022).
