In our Rock-Dance and village chants, we return to gather and assemble more wombs for our gang of she-demons. The moment of choice, the coronation, traverses our timeline once more. Who will fight for us, for you? Welding her heart’s blood with gold, imbued with pathos, charged with pride; She will become the marrow of her bones against her own skeleton.
Here is where the songs and dances of a tale begin, initiating the vocal rituals and folklore, inspired by the eastern country of the Black Sea: Georgia, and a parallel universe originated from imagination.
We owe this Epos to the history written in blood.
The performance will include partial nudity and graphic language
