The BIG BAD and the little good
I have always been fascinated with the nature of story and its ability to transport us and transmit truths that are beyond our reach. I’m particularly interested in the stories that recur in variation across cultures and time, expressing archetypal characters and themes (tales of good and evil, right and wrong, beauty and ugliness, wilderness and home, death and resurrection). Fairy tales have evolved to serve our collective psyche, the sweet 'once upon a time' beginning usually leads us through the cruel and unpredictable nature of life before offering any solace or redemption. These heroes’ journeys through death and resurrection; magical creatures’ and animals’ interactions in anthropomorphized form; and cautionary tales with incredible events are symbols recorded in my body. The Big Bad and the Little Good examines fairytale, feminine constructs, and somatic experience.
