Under Your Dress, runtime: 25 mins
Through costume and performance, I embody my mother in the “past” and carry out an elaborate ritual to heal her/our generational trauma. This hypothetical event imagines a new family narrative, one where my mother healed herself (and her relationship with her own mother) before I was born.
This piece is part of a trilogy of short films, and a larger multidisciplinary project, absence makes the heart grow _______, where I employ experimental methods of remotely healing myself and the collective pain of my estranged family without any of us actually being in conventional contact.
This project is informed by my ongoing intersectional research in psychology, neuroscience, diverse healing modalities, quantum physics, and spirituality.
