I am Aurora. I am a dancer, artist, yogi and writer. I am currently embarking on making a one-woman show about female empowerment.
This piece is inspired by my past work of teaching dance and yoga to adolescent women. In these wonderful young women I recognized that something was missing. I saw them questioning whether it was acceptable to look inside of themselves and wonder if what they saw was okay. I saw a fear of trusting themselves, their pleasures, their passions and their power. Therefore, I feel highly motivated to share a joyful perspective of empowerment that they can relate to.
Over the past three months, I have been choreographing, writing, collaging and creating this new one-woman performance piece entitled, You are the Song You've Been Waiting For. It tells the story of a young woman with lollipop lungs that have dried out, making her mute. So, a wise whale woman finds her, recognizes her ailment and her cure, and that is to eat her. Once swallowed, the young woman embarks on an adventure of self-discovery, encountering many entities on her way who reveal her own hidden powers to her. It is a tale of questioning, acceptance, healing, inspiration and empowerment. It is a story that I am passionate about sharing, so I am asking for your help in sharing it.
