I’ve not ever seen a story as artfully created, showing an unsettling yet long over due end to brute, masculine dominations, as can be observed in stunning depictions in Becoming.
- Falling | 2006
- Ms. Ayelen Liberona directed, choreographed and performed
while hanging from a tree. This is the first part in a tetralogy
about our relationship with nature and the return of the goddess.
Becoming | 2009
- This is the second part in the tetralogy, and an award winner.
More here, and the paragraph you see below has been originally noted here.
Becoming tells the story of Idolamantis, an ancient woman
who moves like a praying mantis as she blends gracefully
through changing landscapes. Despite her elegance, though,
Idolamantis is not called upon lightly for she is as deadly as
she appears innocent. But the wise fireflies that watch over
the forest have sensed a dancer. Man’s uniformity has
spread through infinite fields that are swallowing up the last
remnants of those old forests we once inhabited. Idolamantis
crosses the last portal that separates our worlds and leaps
through a cornfield to lure Man into one final battle.
