In Pelvic Bath modern day priestesses take the audience on a journey on the mothership, through the five gates of the cosmic vagina into the galactic womb. The audience is invited to lay down on large cushions, close their eyes and travel inside their own imagination. Guided by the voices of the priestesses and a celestial soundtrack, they are immersed into a sound-bath of sci-fi feminist mythology.
Pelvic Bath is about the re-awakening of sexuality, rituals of (self-)love and pleasure, through the female body, as powerful tools that can both heal individuals as well as transform the collective. The female body is discovered through sci-fi mythology, pleasure, the erotic, expressed in text, voice and movement.
“As women we have come to distrust that power which rises from our deepest and non-rational knowledge. (...) But the erotic offers a well of replenishing and provocative force to the woman who does not fear its revelation (...).” Audre Lorde, Uses of the Erotic
