Through a ritualistic performance we commemorate all women that suffered violation or pain in patriarchal systems. Based on two historical female figures, we dive into cross-generational and collective trauma and aim to summon a self-triggered exorcism, which allows us to discover, accept and erupt the darkness within us; while transforming the force of pain and anger into lust, desire, (self)empowerment.
