Ancient Lands – Ancient Peoples

Original Performance on April 2, 1994

1994 – Ancient Lands – Ancient Peoples was an important early part of the development of MWDCCo environment initiatives.  The specific concept of Ancient Lands – Ancient Peoples was to develop an association with shamanic powers and their role in more ancient cultures.  The work was developed as a ritual duet and then as solo.  In this dramatic work, grounded by the association with the Earth, Maida performs as a primal figure with painted white face and plastic tubes flowering from her head as a shaman figure – female creativity.  The  work was  performed in Tokyo, Japan,; Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, China; and in Seoul, Korea.
