CONFINEMENT is a testament to motherhood over lockdown.
It is a project for mothers by mothers.
Set in the wilderness of Walthamstow Wetlands, this site-specific project uses costume, sound & movement to examine the historic traditions of post-natal confinement in the context of the global pandemic lockdowns.
In collaboration with composer Helen Epega & choreographer Masumi Saito this project consists of a site-specific costume-led performance at Walthamstow wetlands in London, a series of ‘Echos’ in the form of short films working with filmmaker Vicki Thornton and creative community workshops resulting in a collective artwork in the form of a digital 'Patchwork'
