We two..we too
"We two..we too" is an immersive live performance piece in collaboration with Philippa Kate Weave.
It was Presented at Ugly Duck Gallery London as part of the "Sheroes–Revoluciones", a project designed to draw attention to violence against women.
“Between us, we share experiences of rape, domestic violence, child loss and betrayal: between us, we share our triumphs, achievements, joy and our hope. Our goal is to inspire women to make a conscious decision to overcome experience and to shape their world with confidence.”
Two women, two generations, two mediums… one shared journey. A journey of innocence, trauma and triumph.
We Two… We Too… is a personal story which becomes universal through the voices of different generations and artistic mediums. It is an unfolding of a journey understood by many; an innocent gender-free energy that develops into a cathartic climax through a point of break/trauma. The culmination of emotional tension reaches its peak and a decision has to be made - to break through or to remain “broken”.
We Two… We Too… is an immersive performance, where everyone is invited to join in the celebration of personal power; to “shake and scream” it all out. We all deserve to tell our untold stories, everyone’s story is worth listening to, and together, through movement and sound, we can create a strong and vital cathartic experience.
