The Collective Womb at El Jardin del Paraiso
“our bodies emerged out of wombs that emerged out of wombs that emerged out of wombs that emerged out of wombs that emerged out of wombs...”

Interdisciplinary performance artist Alexandra Neuman brings the premiere of The Collective Womb to El Jardin del Paraiso for a night of mythmaking on the summer solstice. This performance is a matriarchal creation story in which abortion is recognized as an ecological redistribution of life-force. Staged on a large mound of soil, the performance celebrates the macro-scale creative power of our planet and the micro-scale creative power of each individual womb. This immersive event will include puppetry, dance, herbal elixirs, and live music on the drums and theremin.

Showtimes: El Jardin del Paraiso: Thursday June 20, 8pm
