FARA

About the performance

My journey, my home, my soil; everything in my bag.

My silence, my land.

My reverence towards passion.

A ritual in the present moment dedicated to time and to my history.

My body, filled with memories and artifacts of my history.

Of what I seem to be and of what I really am.

My seed. Me and my forceful silence.

The first woman, a reign, a root, a history.
