With Maylee Todd.
Maylee Todd’s Virtual Womb. A place of gestation, meditation, rebirth, and deprogramming. A place of kaleidoscopic perspectives and ideas, where birth and death are one of the same, where there is potential for change to happen, and a place with no past and no fear of the future.
Here we are on neutral ground. We have not yet taken form; no age, race, gender, education, nationality, status, any type of identification that might set you apart from another being. Here we have not yet been defined. Here there is no judgement that holds any value.
Be closed to the poetry of intuition, flashes of telepathy, the idea of universal language, words that come from another, and a receptacle for new information. Once you exit the womb you can choose to be reborn as a new being.
Bring a blanket, walk through a large vagina, and enter a place of gestation; Maylee Todd’s Virtual Womb. Todd will performing live showcasing her upcoming album ‘Acts Of Love’ with harp and various electronics. Todd’s music will be synced to projections on the ceiling created by various video artists.
