like summertime which changes
from the beginning to the end and the end to the beginning
not the wild weed
but some tidal uprising
some flour of yesterday
some scent of what tomorrow may bring
A glass house.
A cartography lesson.
A drinking game.
An invitation to gather at the table.
An immersive / multimedia / multi-sensory experience through the contemporary mapping of the female body.

Songs of Body is an invitation / a cycle of evolving, immersive performances of different moments in time performed in different locations / a synaesthetic music score / an experimental opera inspired by women's folk songs of Eastern Europe, Georgian folk and liturgical music, the architecture of a house, and the violent mapping of the female body / assistant choreographed by Emily Wolfe / produced by Michelle Sui / Julia Kennelly / Anna Lesniak
