A goddess and an astronaut.
Resting their head on the earth, they enter into their subconscious cave.
Grieving towards the light, they reconnect with their grace.
The psychonaut is called upon their warrior to protect the divine.
Who believes that we are the only ones?
Inner reaches of outer space.
Soul-scapes is a polyphony of the diverse colors of the soul through the form of a fictive rite of passage. A duo is being each other’s master of ceremony, creating the aural universe for each other’s dance by interweaving breath, voice and movement, relating the individual to the collective, to the anima mundi and the cosmos. Through shape-shifting we twist through different archetypes into a mythical alchemy, spinning a multilayered world of the sublime and the surreal, the mystical and the cyborgian. Letting the music radiate through our movements we amplify our dance through our voice.
