    Are our psychological issues to be explored through years of soul-searching psychoanalysis or ‘cured’ with short-term, solution-focused, cognitive behaviour tactics? Do live artists act against self-inhibiting irrational beliefs or is their work the expression of a symptom, neurosis or pathology? How can performance serve therapeutic ends? Join Oriana, guest artists and psychologists and find out all the answers! This special edition of The O Show features Oriana’s real-life therapist, Bernadette Ainsworth who taught our host how to unconditionally accept her self and others. Perhaps more importantly, Bernadette made Oriana aware that by performing in front of a live audience, she was practicing what rational emotive behaviour therapists call ‘shame attacking’. We will explore this phenomenon further, asking Bernadette to clarify exactly how performance, the R.E.B.T. way, can be used to change our emotional responses to whatever life throws at us. Our second guest Liz Bentley, who is a psychotherapist by day and performer/comedienne by night, does a lot of self-disclosing for someone whose day job requires a high level of anonymity. Liz will share how therapy helped her to overcome her struggles with drugs, relationships, abuse and the diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis and how, these days, performing ‘keeps her out of trouble’. Also joining us is the acting coach Sam Rumbelow who feels equally strongly about the therapeutic potential of performance, but comes at it from a completely different angle. As a fierce proponent of The Method and having worked on himself through 12 years of Jungian analysis, Sam believes that our unconscious minds hold the key to our creativity and psychological wellbeing and that by experiencing the full range of our emotions we come closer to knowing what we truly desire.

                  Toute Ma Vie 2007 durée: 20 min. 'Toute Ma Vie' est une oeuvre a mi-chemin entre emancipation et mythologie personnelle. Sous l'emprise des courants souterrains d'un subconscient filmique, l'artiste-danseuse hesite: "Ceci est-il ma vie, ou des images de Hollywood? Ceci est-il l'echo de mon devenir, ou la voix enregistree de quelque guide didactique?" C'est a travers plaisir, nostalgie et humour meles qu'Oriana Fox explore le role qu'ont joue, dans sa vie, les scenes mythiques du cinema musical et les clips video. Filigranes omnipresentes des evenements et experiences qui ont forme son identite et sa sexualite, ils sont les jalons de sa vie. Et cette voix off - quelle soit voix reelle ou la voix interiorisee de parents, psychologues et amis - continue de resonner et de conseiller ses emotions. Au bout du compte, Oriana pose la question: cette voix guide-t-elle notre danse, ou est-ce le contraire? Corps et esprit sont-ils synchrones dans leurs mouvements respectifs, ou se marchent-ils sur les pieds dans leur valse symbiotique? Peu importe la reponse... Ecoutons ce murmure... Et succombons au rire, aux pleurs et a la danse. -M. Fox (traduit par Sven Olivier Van Damme)

                    'We All Liked Him' performed at Zero de Conduite, Elevator Gallery, London 14 March 2008, approx 10 min. written and directed by Oriana Fox choreographed by Katherine Shirley performed by Oriana Fox, Moonie King, Claire Soares, Alice Theobald, Sven Olivier Van Damme and Ianthe Wright Five ladies and one gentleman take over the dance floor, doing the hustle in formation to The Bee Gee's hit 'You Should be Dancing'. Hips thrusting and arms gyrating, the stud takes each lady one by one for a spin to clear some space for his solo. As he performs a routine to make John Travolta green with envy, I take the microphone. The music fades slightly as I recount a dream I had. "I was back in high school. The cutest boy in the whole school was running around the track. Me and my girlfriends looking out of a window staring. I could see the lust in all our eyes reflected in the window as we sang the Brady Bunch theme song: 'All of them had hair of gold, like their mother.' And that’s when I noticed that my friends and I all had blonde hair, like our TV mother. We were TV sisters, so close, so alike. And we shared a desire for the same boy. Would this tear us apart? Would I choose my sisters or leave them for The Boy? Must I choose?" The music gets louder and the women encircle the lone male, enticing him. A cat-fight breaks out, one lady grabs another by her hair, another gets an elbow in the gut until one lady is left to dance one-on-one with Him. She thinks she has got him all to herself when another chick finally recovers and tears her away too. The music grinds to a halt and a spotlight illuminates a giant papier-mâché cock. The first lady to notice it screams, alerting the others. In a moment of camaraderie they desert the stud and storm the penis piñata. With sticks ready to hand they destroy the phallus in a frenzy. After a concerted and violent effort, assorted white candies, condoms and confetti burst out.

                      'Tale of Narcissus' is the second in the series of videos in which I have set the words of the popular TV series Sex and The City into the mouths of 1970s feminists, all of whom are played by myself. In this mini-episode Samantha has nude photographs taken in which she poses with chewing-gum vulvas on her body, a gesture mimicking that of the artist, Hannah Wilke.
