Live artist Marisa Carnesky explores how the practice as research performance project Incredible Bleeding Woman came together and the process involved behind the show. Themes of menstrual synchronicity, re-inventing menstrual rituals and popular cultural representations of menstruation in horror film will be explored. In this lecture, Marisa will also show footage from the performance project including new original films of performers from the work and tell stories of the experience of touring, running workshops and presenting versions of the work in London, Croatia, Finland, Australia and Scotland and talk about the future plans of the project.
This evening's talk is a provocative, rigorously researched tour of Marisa Carnesky's research into the importance of celebrating the symbolic and cultural power of menstruation, reinventing menstrual rituals for a new era drawing on the hidden power of a forgotten matriarchal past.
