The Body As a Pair of Eyes

Live performance, 10'
Concept and performance: Joy Bernard
Music: Maya Perry 

Multidisciplinary artist Maya Perry invited me to create a performance in response to her solo exhibition at Tel Aviv's Inga Gallery, Learning to Live in the Present
Accompanied by Perry's live music session, I depicted with my body the sensations of trauma, disassociation and the yearning for recovering expressed in her drawings. 
The spontaneous choreography was a result of a dialogue between us regarding the female body and the book 'The Body Keeps the Score' by psychiatrist Bassel van der Kolk.
