a self portrait is not a face…

…it is infinitely bigger than your face… And I found a way to honor my father’s death in the performance “The Cycle of Life or The Light Shines Ceaselessly”who had died in my arms.

I enjoyed this particular occasion so much, especially because of the inspiring conversations that evolved afterwards. I love the beautiful space at the Isbourne Foundation in Cheltenham and thoroughly enjoyed working with Lindsay Treen, as always. She is a creative gem, from whom I have learned lots.

Thanks so, so much to everyone who has made this evening possible.

With Love…

“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.

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
