Aire: Solo for my Mother

Posted on Apr 15, 2019

When my mother died I imagined her spirit rising up to fly freely with the red kites, magnificent birds that are native in her country of Wales.

My mother inspired in me the desire to seek freedom in my life. 

This solo is my way of expressing gratitude to all the women who have fought hard for the rights of women. 

This solo is an expression of my desire for all women to be free.

I have performed Aire in various places around the world including Buenos Aires, Berlin, Carmarthen W. Wales, Hong Kong and Taipei Taiwan. In non English-speaking countries I invite an older woman to be on stage with me as co-performer, witness and translator.
