Backbone and Navel #3

I haven’t always been alone. I must have been with someone. Maybe even inside someone since I have a navel in the middle of my belly visible to the naked eye.
 
Direct image theatre inspired by feminist philosopher Helene Cixous, which reimagines and re-presents her ideas, tapping into a resurgence of debate about what it means to be a woman today.
 
Cixous’ writing on Genesis and the fall of Eve forms the backdrop to this exploration of our cultural ecology: of forests, heroes and the female body. Intimate, honest, and unflinching, the show attempts to reclaim the female identity.
 
Directed by Cara Berger and Performed by Victoria Beesley
