“The Cycle of Life” second performance 22nd of April 2016

The Cycle ofLife April 22We had a wonderfully ecstatic evening last night. The room felt thick with blissful silence at the end of the performance…and it would have felt wholly appropriate to extend the evening into an hour of silent meditation.

The audience was extremely responsive, which made the occasion incredibly joyful and really supported the performance to become more and more ecstatic and powerful.

The feedback we received was very happy and pretty phenomenal:

“I was transported into pure being”

“it was extremely powerful”

“this was very unique and special”

“this was such a gift”

“I could have watched you all night”

“Lindsay and you work together so well”

are some of things I remember, and I was just overjoyed by the happiness that was communicated in many different ways.

“deep 

in the softness of the heart

I meet you there 

with great delight”

This is literally what I most enjoy doing…

I can’t wait to do the next one… thanks so much to the Site Festival team to take our piece on board, (before it even existed!) and thank you so much Lindsay for the wonderfully enjoyable collaboration, thank you Miles for all your support and thanks to my mother for all help with this… and a deep thank you to everyone who shared the experience of “The Cycle of Life” with us so far… may there be many more events like this one…and may the process grow into a larger group of participants over time…

with Love, Eva

Yesterday on the 16th of April, Lindsay Treen and I had our first performance. It was a very enjoyable occasion, which I felt deeply uplifted by. I enjoy creating art so much in which I can share a vision of a world… in which we humans create more beauty, a lot more beauty together.

very funny rehearsal

Our last rehearsal for “The Cycle of Life” was hilarious, we had a lot of reasons to laugh and giggle. About everything went wrong that can go wrong…I tripped over the tripod legs, stood on my skirt, forgot my lines, had the pictures piled up in the wrong order and felt altogether very different…

interestingly enough… when Lindsay and I watched the footage we were amazed…the way sound, singing, movement, images and poetry flowed into each other was phenomenal. There was a new transparency and delicacy we both entered into…

We were rehearsing the second part… which tends to blow me away every time when I sit down to learn the script to such a degree, that I just get lost in silent contemplation…

This is not like conventional rehearsing…it’s a very living process:

Self Portrait

an image of the Mystery of Light

Self Portrait

the paradox of transformation

in no space timeless oneness of all there is

can you draw my face

“an ecstatic conversation for two voices one in being”:

a new experimental exploration, set to footage filmed at the beautiful Selsley Common near Stroud, images interwoven with poetry by Milo Thresher and myself into a contemplative collage exploring a story without a story, an event without an event, the mystery of radiating as love from beyond the world of things…enjoy….!

new photo montages

this has been a very exciting 24 hours of new creations flowing…

I love it when I surprise myself…with a new wildness, a new softness, a new disinterest in showing faces as a whole… I’d love your feedback (I integrated them into ‘the cycle of life’ on my page digital photo montages and poetry)
