Mother used language and attitude wholeheartedly to insult me and wholeheartedly to love me. - Suzuki Suzumi

Inspired by Giada’s own story with her mother, this 30-minute dance show explores the love from the “Uterus,” a space intended for nurturing yet laden with the constraints of societal expectations. The daughter is released from the uterus the moment she is born, but forever echoes what was rooted in that body, to obey and be an appropriate woman. Through this piece, the audience is invited to empathize with the subtle oppression, pain, and enforced conformity that women endure in a patriarchal society.
