This is your invitation to the 121212 Festival of Cyber-performance!
The retrospective section of the program “Walking Backwards into the Future” is already underway.
The portion that I am involved in is the new experimental works, Testing 1, 2, 1, 2, 1, 2 .

We will be performing a piece called ‘excavating desire/fouilles pour le désire”
About the Show
Excavating Desire – Fouilles pour le Désire
Play The Moment Shakti (Canada, USA)
Excavating Desire is a free improvised audio and visual work in four movements:
- On the Surface – exploring constraints imposed on female desire by society and ourselves
- Digging Deep – recognizing our wants and needs
- Gathering Courage – risking societal censure, economic loss or emotional pain requires resolve and strength
- Flowering of Passion – acceptance and expression of our own inner identity
Four women going through the same risk and hardship of “Excavating Desire”.
Desires are often hidden underneath layers so we do not even recognize them ourselves. It is a risk to reveal our true self, particularly in personal and intimate situations, but also when revealing oneself as an artist. “Excavating Desire” provides a structure to peel away the layers of constraint and grant ourselves permission to express what we choose to see and hear as art.
