A4 Sounds Residency: Mother May I?
‘Mother May I?’ is a reconciliation between Mother Earth, the physical mother, and my fore-mothers. By exploring motherhood, growing up in the diaspora, colonialism and how that affects manifestations of gender. This gender-performance is tied into the negligence of our planet, and the betrayal of our fore-mothers and the land.
