Bonnie MacAllister: "What the WaterWore" is a multimedia piecefeaturing live performance, projected film, prerecorded audio, and asmall amount of audience participation. The piece describes thefundamental right to clean water, the threats faced globally in our challenged ecosystems, through the perspective of the water herself if she were a woman living a village with no well or access to this lifesource.
“Gertrude for Dinner” is a physical theatre piece about women’s relationship with consuming food. Inspiration for this work comes from a traditional and contemporary meme, the image of eating spaghetti while crying. At first this is strikingly hilarious, but deconstruction reveals an issue with roots that span centuries. This image has been in western art consciousness from its Italian Renaissance origins in situational comedies known as Commedia Dell’arte. Today it can be viewed on hard-to-avoid websites such as eatingandcrying.com. The goal of this work is to show the resource of food as a multi-layered energy source for all women.
