Maria Svensson ‘The Importance of Shepherds’
I am a sister, a daughter, an empty vessel. I am the wise woman, the bone woman, the warrior and the wolf. I am a child of God, of Mother Earth, a trace of my ancestors. I am the advantaged generation asking why? I am a seeker, a fool, a Goddess. I am a leader, a shepherd guiding myself through the Kingdom of souls.
This solo is an attempt to celebrate women and especially my granny Mary Henic. In the complexity of this it is also a reflection on how I can and would have organised myself in order to exist in this world.
What if the depth is on the surface?
