The Cyclone Pursuit

Creation 2019

A cyclone destroys everything in its path.
I would be this cyclone.
And we will dance in my eye.

The Cyclone Pursuit

Sharing the feminist idea that "Personal is political", I start from my own struggles, from my intimacies, in order to try to identify collective issues and to initiate transformations, be they public, private, in the social, ethical, political, sexual field...

The challenge here is to destroy a world that is ending and unjust, that does not want to leave room. To do it with rage and anger, to protest, burn, scare and find a war dance accompanied by the memory of our ancestors.
We will celebrate the destruction of this world and at the same time of our old obsolete identities.

How do we destroy a world?
How long will that take?
How to frighten, intimidate, challenge, galvanize?
Can I re-birth and be who I want? Can you?

We will mourn and let our deads go to stay on the side of the living. We will celebrate our rebirth and that of the world with joy and pleasure, noise and appeasement.

It will be a struggle to survive and then to live, with daily determination, with commitments and firmness, with lightnings and rumblings, with tenderness and love.

It will take courage and determination to give birth to a more just, inclusive, egalitarian, tolerant, benevolent world.

It will be dark and powerfull, it will be bright and joyfull.
