Premier Performance, Expectations Full Filled

It was such a successful night. Thanks to everybody who came and joined us. What a beautiful feeling to share a work which has been in a development for a while. It has worth every second of all those intense moments and thoughts.

We have created two paintings during the performance. Space was full and we had to turn down some people. 

This project is a beginning of many others. It is going to be a platform for artists to share pure and honest experiences with audiences.

I am so excited and a bit nervous. I know how strong the images created during live performance. So strong, intense, sharp... To be honest unique... 
My anciety is not for the quality of the work, but we are going public... Everything we do, Joao, Mina and I is depending on our true honest emotional sharing and polylouge, creating new language during our non-verbal ex-change of dialogue.

Here is ArtReach's invitation to powerful live performance art project:

"ArtReach is delighted to invite you to the première performance of 'A Journey of UnBelonging'

The piece combines live reflective movement painting, music composition, live projection and will take place on Thursday 20th March, 5.15pm in Curve's Rehearsal Room 2.

This 30-40 min piece will be followed by a Leicester City of Sanctuary fundraiser downstairs at The Exchange (opposite CURVE theatre, Leicester). A buffet will provided by Chutney Ivy Restaurant (suggested donation £3.50).

We look forward to seeing you there! "

Spaces Once Hold Memories... Trelex Amazon Residency

Trelex Amazon Residency Reflections,
I could write two posts to describe the amazing space that Trelex Amazon and Rainforest Expeditions provided for us, one for Refugio and one for TRC (Tambopata Research Centre.) The lodges are incredible. Being in a jungle and far away from the world is an exhilarating experience. Having a whole month in the rainforest and in this environment allowed me to relax and absorb the space, the people, the jungle and myself. The art of exploration could not get any more comfortable and luxurious.Was I spoiled? Yes, very much so and I love the memory that stays with me.
I developed 2 major bodies of work during my residency in the Amazon at the Rainforest Expedition Lodges. One of them is a photography series and the other one is experimental electronic soundscapes.

A Brief Look onto My Abortion Experience

I am not trying to be a voice for every woman in the world. These are my and some of my friends' experiences on our abortions.
I do understand why some people might be against abortion. I appreciate the effort of granting the best what we can to the world we live in.  Saving lives matters. That is their deed and I accept this actuality. No intention of mine towards changing them. I am only asking to live their reality far out of my reach. We still remark each other. I am the woman who they are against.
Abortion is not just about "my body my decision". It is about "my life, my future, and a little person’s possible deprived and unhealthy future" if has not been fit to raise them.  
Hey, have a vision, maybe,I am saving you from a potential serial killer.  
If a woman is not in a right state or doesn’t have the means to look after herself, the child is going to have a very hard time growing up.
I am not suggesting, we should force the women to have the babies they don&…
