Amelia Charter performs "Mountain Mothasupial", as part of "Mothernism 101" (Lise Haller Baggesen)

M o t h a s u p i a l D o. L a.

This performance/live artwork is in homage to a mothasupial’s first unborn daughter. The poetry read and spoken streams off the page and hops into improvisation occasionally. The choreography is inspired by the mothers of Lise Haller Baggesen’s letters, which you can hear through the headphones as part of her installation. 

about Amelia's artwork: Amelia's performance artwork presents a point of attraction between the somatic, material, persona, and meditation. She weaves together specific postmodern theories, somatic principles, improvisational choreography, immersive scenic design, and hybrid writing. Her performance/live artwork embodies the nature of ephemera by illuminating the subtle dialectic nature of materials, craft, and mood.
