‘Goddesses dream when they bleed’ is the first creation resulting from the collaboration between the Belgian artist Annabel Reid and the Lithuanian artist Goda Žukauskaitė.
Inspired by the age-old act of women washing clothes, this project explores the intimate and vulnerable relationship between women reclaiming their bodies, power and space. Wash, wear and twist clothes until they become a weapon. In a space formed by washing lines, white sheets and sound equipment, two bodies delve into the physical heaviness of domestic labor and reveal rhythms, body and space transformations.
Through this interdisciplinary performance, combining choreography, sound and visual art, ‘Goddesses dream when they bleed’ invites us to acknowledge the unpaid labor of our mothers, grandmothers, our grandmothers’ mothers and those who came before them.
