Dreamline mothership INC / Pt. 1: journey into the cosmic womb

In **Dreamline mothership INC / Pt. 1: journey into the cosmic womb**  an enchanted stewardess is taking the audience on a journey on the mothership into the galactic womb. A guided meditation, a fantastic sci-fi voyage into the cosmic womb, the mythological origin of the universe.

On the mothership the audience is transported through the cosmic vaginal pathway, passing several portals which are opening and deepening the journey to one’s own intimacy and pleasure in order to generate a dream conception. The cosmic womb is here interpreted as a black hole in the universe from which all dreams can be conceived and birthed into being. The story unfolds through spoken text, that sometimes becomes a song and a dance, accompanied by a celestial soundtrack created by Laryssa Kim. Inspired by somatic practices, where one is often guided through words into bodily states, this guided sci-fi journey is blurring genres between guided mediation, somatic scores, workshop, ritual and lecture performance.
