I am so honored and excited to perform this Saturday night as part of MOTHERLOAD, an evening of art surrounding birth, motherhood, postpartum depression, the WURX.
Motherhood is NO. JOKE. It is meat and guts and bursting open and Birth... is almost Death. It is really important to take Mother's stories seriously, and for society (not to mention the art/music/theatre/dance world) to bow deeply to their experience.
My Bjork project was my Postpartum project. What started as an exercise/exorcism in extracting the feminist bits and pieces in Bjork's music, became a journey exploring my own story in 'New Motherhood.' This story includes deep anxiety and depression, identity crises, confusion, joy, bliss, fear, death and rebirth, loss, gain, mystery and so much more.
I will be sharing songs from this project that explore Birth, Invisible Labor, and Rape Culture as it pertains to disbelieving the Victim.
I am joined by a crew of amazing artists. Come.
