  2. Constantly bombarded with images of "perfection" can lead some to take drastic measures to live up to the mould. The main problem is once you change one thing, it can become quite clear what should be changed next until nothing remains of the original. This becomes a type of fetish for some.

  3. Inspired by life in Britain, this piece brings the ancient world and modern society together as it explores the role of women and motherhood. The back drop is Cader Idris (chair of the giant) which we hear of in the tales of King Arthur. Heavily inflenced by tradtional Indian dance, the choreography is based partly on the age old Welsh tradition of making bread from seaweed (bara lafwr or bara lawr) and partly on a poem by an Irish poet in which he compares his mom to a chair. She is always there for everyone else, even when she’d like to return to her previous life as a tree in the forrest.

    Iranian Amir Kalhor plays an original modern composition on the ancient Perisan instrument, tar, to signify the woman’s inner voice. At first this is loudest, but as life continues, other sounds drown this voice out. These „other“ sounds are the original modern day sounds from the Cader Idris footage and from an experimental piece by the Welsh band, Stylus (Ochre Records) that was produced from live sound recorded at the last seaweed collecting hut in Pembrokeshire.
