We gather empowered by the healing energies of the full moon, in loving support of each other in embracing the joys and challenges that come with spiritual growth as women. Bearers of womb, the diamond doorway of people, that creates, protects and preserves life-seeds that we all become.
Collaboration with Joie de Winter and Jamuna Joland.

An immersive performance touching upon the shadow aspects and elements of responsibilities that come to the fore when the spirit eye, imbued with the human perspective, opens to octaves of universal reality. Translated as a modern reincarnation of the mythical figure Cassandra of Troy visionary, healer and political dissident.
THE SEER. Body eye. For spirit eye.
“I am i am i am
totally grounded so horror reaches me as it travels
the view is crucial i spot, r assessing sights but i too can feel
with closed eyes”
and with closed eyes you follow in her steps. and down and down you go. into the bowels of the earth.

The music I have chosen for this mix culminates a year of inspiring sounds that celebrate some aspect of human life, time, breath, tone, rhythm, or voice.
Like my other ritual mixes I hope to expose the power of sound to depict or induce an altered state of consciousness through ritualistic expression. The human within this framework acts as a vessel that can display, although sometimes under strange circumstances, the many perceptions of life and dreams. Through the artist's exploration and our own interpretation we are able to see beyond the narrow spectrum that much of the world wishes us to live within.
Respect to all of the artists featured on this mix. I suggest listeners to take the time to research about their musical creations but if there is a particular piece of music you want to know about, please do ask by leaving a comment and I will try to answer. The artwork is from a print by the mighty Mira Varg. (miravarg.com/MIRA-VARG)

Presented in the Parthenon Gallery at the British Museum, artist Alexis Blake's worked with a group of professional dancers to question historical representations of the idealised female body. Referencing Diana Watts and Dora Menzler’s contributions to the women’s physical culture movement of the early 20th Century, which drew inspiration from Greek philosophy, history and ideals, this choreographic work will explore notions of national collective identity vs personal expression through form, symmetry and balance in movement.
Conditions of an Ideal is a co-commission from Block Universe and Delfina Foundation, and is supported by the Mondriaan Fonds and The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
With thanks to the CROSS International Performance Award, The British Museum and Ian Jenkins.
