SOMETIMES I VISUALIZE MYSELF BACK IN THE BELLY OF MY MOTHER (2021)

performance (and movie version)

I am barely awake.
I try to open my eyes
The first minute I only see light.

There is a membrane tangled around my body.
From my toes,
to my ankles,
my knees,
around my legs,
my butt,
my back,
my belly,
my chest,
my neck,
my chin,
my cheeks,
my mouth
my nose,
my eyes,

all the way up to my crown.

In ‘Sometimes I visualize myself back in the belly of my mother’ 5 singers scream in harmony, looking for a nod, a ‘yes’, a sign of understanding, a reaction. But if this will never come, only the echo can offer us comfort.
