Beautiful darkness – grief rituals

BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS ~ rituels de deuil
Poésie & dance video
2021 – 2022

Since the first day of spring,
in Mars 2021,
I have performed a serie of spontaneous grief rituals.

At first, there was no words.
Grief expressed itself first through movements.
An irrepressible need to dance the pain.

My body, my voice,
gave shape to the energies in motion,
in the spontaneity of the instant.

So I danced.

Then came words.
They flooded me in the car, at the kitchen table, they woke me up at dawn.

Words flowed out of me, like gestures were moving my body.

What will come next?
