Feminine flow, unfurling through space

By: Marjory Mejia

I love the sinuous, kinetic, serpentine, swirling, spiraling movements of these beings expressing fluidity.

The last one is a woman, a Goddess-like artist able to beautifully embody and transmit this sacred quality,

this feminine flow vibrating between the auditory, visual, and tactile dimensions as She unfurls through space.

images-copyThe work I do is extremely visual, but I am not interested in static ‘pictures’. It is visceral, unfolding, morphing, shape-shifting, evolving, erupting, exploding visual stimuli that interest me. There is almost nothing more visually entrancing than coloured lights on moving fabric…The ‘kinetic’ comes from my dance impulse. The urge – the need – to move is what drives me as a choreographer. When you move through space, you displace air and create a wake of spiralling eddies around your body. What the fabric does is render these vortices visible to the eye. The lighting helps sculpt and colour the impression of the movement…When I move in my ‘Loïe’ costume, I often have the impression that I am rendering in 3D form the auditory vibrations pulsing through the air. Kandinsky, the Russian artist and theorist, has a beautiful theory about how colour and music create vibrations which penetrate the soul… ~ Jody Sperling, In Elements of Loïe Fuller, re-imagining her dance movements.

Feminine flow is when I flow, rooted in the soil of my own heart,
