In Dreamline mothership INC / Pt. 1: journey into the cosmic womb an enchanted stewardess is taking the audience on a journey on the mothership into the galactic womb. A guided meditation, a fantastic sci-fi voyage into the cosmic womb, the mythological origin of the universe. On the mothership the audience is transported through the cosmic vaginal pathway, passing several portals which are opening and deepening the journey to one’s own intimacy and pleasure in order to generate a dream conception. The cosmic womb is here interpreted as a black hole in the universe from which all dreams can be conceived and birthed into being. The story unfolds through spoken text, that sometimes becomes a song and a dance, accompanied by a celestial soundtrack created by Laryssa Kim. Inspired by somatic practices, where one is often guided through words into bodily states, this guided sci-fi journey is blurring genres between guided mediation, somatic scores, workshop, ritual and performance.
This project is experimenting with collective induction of imagination through the magical properties of spoken words, such as in prayer, invocations or spells. How can words affect bodies, trigger sensations, cause shifts in perception and even invite altered states of consciousness? Inspired by rituals, throughout this session, the audience is invited to access their own imageries connected to this sci-fi feminist mythology and guided to dream ‘birth’ an oracle for our species future.
