"Seeds..." is about understanding divine interference and finding catharsis through severance. Two figures are infinitely connected, rotating in solitude, while audience members are invited to play god to the situation and sever their ties over the course of 4 hours. Each life giving thread that is cut, is a clue to the performers that they are not in control. At last when they are released from all bonds, they discover their own independence and it is as painful as it is pleasurable, confusing yet liberating, but their discovery is ultimately our responsibility. If we did nothing, they would learn nothing.
