performance

The ritual, performance and body painting art project A Dance for Gaia is an online performance, for more follow me @ instagram.com/susan_florries

The series portrays an unknown Goddess. Sparked by an impulse of compassion, she lands on Earth, takes on the colors of the environment and dances for Gaia. The emotions that she experiences through her deep empathy with our home planet are varied and deep.
*
A step in hope for liberation and regeneration
Movement in rhythm with the flow of life
A ceremony for the being that we call home

*
In Greek mythology, Gaia is the personification of the Earth and one of the Greek primordial deities. Gaia is the ancestral mother of all life: the primal Mother Earth goddess.
*
The spirit of the project A Dance for Gaia revolves around love for nature, a desire to be fully present as well as a deeply felt wish to remind us to be there for the planet that we call home.
