Bendita Tú Eres (BLESSED ART thou) is a self-healing ritual of becoming decolonized and therefore uncivilized, and an Incantation for the possible healing of the audience. It reclaims the inherently mystical and spiritual nature of dance that necessarily connects us to our ancestors and our history. It explores the possibility of performing as an act of becoming rather than as an expression of the Self; a performance as an undoing, a liberation from western assumptions of beauty, femininity and order; a transformation into a mythical Witch-whore-Virgin Mary-cyborg- womb-cunt-flower-saint-earth-venus-mother-sister-brother-anarchic-utopian future female self.
