Beyond Mary and Joseph

Beyond Mary and Joseph

Beyond Mary and Joseph. Brussels. 2004.
Dancer. Based on how the iconic constructions of holy family affect or relate to construction of personal identity and personal ideals.
Commission for Portuguese choreographer Lilia Mestre, her company Random Scream, through Geneva LaBatie Festival and Kaaitheatre studios.

I perform as the holy cow (Mary Magdalena), which represents fertility, transformation and potential, movement, weight, and work.

Tessa Wills is a live artist

and choreographer with a background in music. She is from England, trained in central Europe and now lives in San Francisco. Her work elevates flaws and wounds as portals, ways of staging humanity, and often integrates eroticism to charge the pieces, which happen primarily on stage and video. Aside from the relentless pull of desire, her current practice is inspired by Hermits and professional mourning.
