Dreamline Mothership INC

In Dreamline Mothership INC an enchanted stewardess takes the audience on a journey in the mothership – 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 a cosmic vaginal pathway, passing several portals which open and deepen the journey towards one’s own intimacy and pleasure in order to generate a dream conception. The cosmic womb is 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, which 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.
