Mairead Delaney and Rae Goodwin join PERFORMANCY FORUM with a new performance in two parts. This three hour cyclical and durational work engages with notions of women’s labor, grace, empathy and endurance.
Part One- Marking Time- is a response to external signals women submit to in their struggle for, against and with themselves and one another in the futility of unending labor.
Part Two- Crawl into our Softness- is a response to and acceptance/reckoning with Other retreating into woman for comfort. They stand on upturned furniture, crawl inside soft bells, stop and start their labor to the sound of a bell. They wrestle with the constructs/constrictions of their bodies as Woman.
